The extraordinary life and artistry of acclaimed film editor Jill Bilcock – award winner for Muriel’s Wedding, Moulin Rouge!, and The Dressmaker (to name a few!).

Jill Bilcock’s work has enriched Australian screens since her early days working on commercials with Fred Schepsi, before she graduated to features with Strikebound (Richard Lowenstein, 1984), and Evil Angels (Fred Schepsi, 1988). Her inventive work on Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet (1996) influenced the look of cinema across the world: inspiring one Hollywood critic to dub her editing style as that of a “Russian serial killer on crack”. With a back-story as colourful and surprising as her films, and featuring commentary from Cate Blanchett, Rob Sitch, Jocelyn Moorhouse and Phil Noyce, Alex Grigor’s documentary is a wonderful insight into the art of editing and the profound impact it has on storytelling.

Renowned editor Jill Bilcock infused Baz Luhrmann’s first three films with a famously frenetic, flashy, in-your-face style. The genesis of 'frame fucking' (the term she and the glitzy auteur coined) is unpacked, with excited testimonial from Luhrmann himself. – Luke Buckmaster, The Guardian
