Dutch Tilt, Aussie Auteur: The Films of Rolf de Heer (2nd Edition)

Published: January 1, 2013.
Rolf de Heer is Australia’s most successful and unpredictable film-maker, with 13 feature films of widely varying style and genre to his name. This auteur analysis of his oeuvre, however, suggests that there is a signature world view to be detected in most of his work, and that he (quite possibly unconsciously) promotes unlikely protagonists who are non-hyper masculine, child-like and nurturing.
