Film Director GILLIAN ARMSTRONG shares her story on Julia Zemiro’s Home Delivery

Legendary film director Gillian Armstrong is this week’s guest on Julia Zemiro’s Home Delivery

Gillian meets up with Julia outside her parents’ dream home in Mitcham in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs. Gillian is delighted to see that so many features of the house have been preserved and shares stories about her frustrated artistic father and his domineering family.

They discuss the background of My Brilliant Career, which saw her become the first woman to direct a feature film in Australia in 50 years. They jump into the back of an immaculate FB Holden and drive to Vermont High, where a perceptive English teacher saw the storyteller within young Gillian.

At Swinburne University Gillian recalls the happy accidents that saw her fall into filmmaking and speaks out at the ingrained gender bias that prevents other women from following in her footsteps.

Julia Zemiro’s Home Delivery is a long form interview series in which the playful and always entertaining Julia Zemiro walks notable people through their old stomping grounds. With each step they uncover the people, places and events that shaped them into the person we know today.

Julia Zemiro’s Home Delivery – Wednesday 24th June at 8pm on ABC
