Emerald City

The title may conjure up images of the Wonderful Land Of Oz, but the plot is set in the Munchkin-Free Australian film industry. John Hargreaves stars as a prosperous screenwriter who is perfectly willing to accept the obscene globs of money thrown at him. One day however, he decides that he's a sellout, and attempts to turn out something of Meaning and Value - and uniquely Australian. But he runs up against an industry with both eyes on the American market. Written by David Williamson.
