Here is Channel Ten’s coverage of the Sydney premiere of Oranges & Sunshine:
And here’s a different clip, which thankfully was public-posted on YouTube so anyone can watch it. 😉 It, too, is low-res, but that’s because it appears to have been shot on a cellphone camera. But there’s a little segment with Hugo (this interviewer seems more a David Wenham fan) as well as Margaret Humphreys and one of the child migrants who inspired the film.
Unfortunately, that seems to be it as far as media coverage is concerned. None of the major online Aussie papers have posted anything about the premiere. But I do know at least two of the monthly movie magazines in Australia will include coverage of the film in their June issues, and I’m working on getting copies. It’s also possible the other media outlets will post more when the film opens wide in Australia, on June 9.
