Most of us may not have heard of it, but Storm Boy is an iconic film that looms large in the Australian psyche.
Curator at the National Film and Sound Archive, Gayle Lake, explains, “There was great identification there in terms of Australian culture — somewhat isolated from the rest of the world.”
The film set a new standard for South Australian production and won Best Film at the Australian Film Industry Awards. The original resonated with the public at the time of its release and remains popular today.
So why a remake? Ms Lake puts it this way: ”If you’re on a good story then it’s worth having a go at and looking at it with a contemporary voice.”
