The director, Richard Linklater, was one of the leaders in the resurgence of independent fi­lm directors in the United States when he started making ­films in the mid 1980s. He has innovated freely since then introducing new concepts into feature ­film making, particularly in the manipulation of time and ageing.

Linklater was also fond of, and made an art of, ­films set over the period of just one day. Here in this ‘Before Trilogy’ he has employed this technique and incorporated time lapse by shooting the three separate fi­lms at intervals of 9 years using the same leading actors. By doing so we can now see realistically how the lives of the two main characters change as they age.

The performances of both Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke are flawless in all three of these fi­lms, graphically showing the emotions between the two characters as their relationship matures. Seeing these three fi­lms on the one day is a rare chance to absorb from the fi­lms the full impact of how human relationships can develop with age.

Speaker: One of Australia's most respected fi­lm critics, Jake Wilson, will introduce each fi­lm and conduct a Q & A session at the end of the day.
