David Brill’s Story On The Frontlines

Join us for a special film screening and Q&A with legendary Tasmanian ABC cinematographer and video journalist, David Brill AM ACS, as he looks back on his incredible career on the frontlines of history, starting from the 1960s and Vietnam, and reflects on current events in the Ukraine and elsewhere.

Hosted by the University of Tasmania’s School of Creative Arts and Media with the support of the Judith Neilson Institute for Journalism and Ideas, in association with the Australian Institute of International Affairs (AIIA) and Australian Cinematographers Society (ACS).

Following the film screening, David will be joined in conversation with ABC presenter Sabra Lane on stage for an audience Q&A.

“He was the best cameraman of his era. He has the great ability to capture what has happened in one take. A take that held longer and told you more. He was a strange combination of artist and action man” – Mike Willesee

“No Australian has covered more great events of the past half-century, including wars, than David Brill. He is without parallel.” – John Tulloh, Former ABC Head of International Operations, News and Current Affairs
