Questions to answer
- “The same levellers of humour and music were the core of one of the most powerful Australian films about outsiders”. The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert was both a “feel good movie” and a “phobia smasher”. Explain what is meant by this description.
- The screenplay was inspired by a threatening experience of the writer/director Stephan Elliot. So what does the making of the film mean for both him and audiences?
- Films like ‘Priscilla’ turn ‘preconceptions into real people’. Explain how.
