Beyond iconic, 'Dogs in Space' is the Melbourne film that everyone in town grew up either actually in* or obsessively re-watching. From the film's championing of Melbourne's internationally influential 'little band' scene to its time-capsule of the politics and partying of our late '70s and early '80s underground, Richard Lowenstein's 'Dogs in Space' embodies something important to everyone connected with it - even if the connection was a coming of age moment courtesy of a VHS from the local video store. 

This beautifully produced paperback coffee table book - Dogs in Space: A Film Archive - contains behind the scenes production notes, photographs, flyers, correspondence, costume trials, script edits and so much more. This is a must-have for anyone interested in the social history that has taken Melbourne from Australia's rainy backwater to our Cultural Capital. 

Format: Prestige paperback with colour photographs and gatefold covers. 

Language: English

Pages: 319

Dimensions (cm): 20 x 25 x 2.5

Weight (kg): 1.08

*A making-of documentary - "We're Livin' on Dog Food" - features a series of increasingly wild and funny asides by a young woman cast in Dogs in Space as very young teenager. Worth hunting out, in our humble opinions, just for the thrill of the shock value.
