When I was 18 years old, I had never before seen Australian film on the big screen.
I don't consciously go out looking for themes. They attach themselves to me.
It's really actually been pretty shoddy and appalling, the amount of local content, Australian drama, on ABC TV.
When I was a young filmmaker starting out, I was really snobby about all the affirmative action for women filmmakers because I felt it should be about your talent, and I made a film that won awards, and people wanted me.
I do think the moral line you walk all the time about putting something in for the sake of the film and not being affected by people's lives is a very tough one.
