Abstract:

Christos Tsiolkas invites you into his twenty-five year journey of viewing and re-imaging the film. He remembers his first illicit experience of the film at age thirteen and describes how his views of it changed in later years. As he chronicles the impact of The Devil's Playground on the development of his sense of self and his love of cinema, he also explores the film in terms of sexuality, politics, history and aesthetics. Tsiolkas' account of what The Devil's Playground said, and didn't say, to him is a tribute to the power and possibilities of cinema.
