In this episode of the Cinema Australia Podcast host Matthew Eeles is joined by Catherine Hill – an accomplished and admired individual who has worked as an actor, script editor and story consultant.

And as well as being an award-winning theatre director, Catherine has been employed as a case manager and a crisis worker for over two decades, working with individuals managing complex issues and often experiencing homelessness.

Drawing on all these experiences Catherine wrote, produced and directed Some Happy Day – a neat little film about a homeless woman, Tina, played by Peta Brady, in desperate search of a better life who meets a social worker, Frances, played by Mary Helen Sassman, with troubles of her own.

Some Happy Day was filmed in and with the community in which the story is set. Many of the background actors have a lived experience of what it is like to be without a home.

Here, Catherine discusses the making of the Some Happy Day, how she fell in love with storytelling and the importance of networking within the Australian filmmaking community, among other things. 

Some Happy Day will screen at The Backlot Perth from November 18 – 21 with Melbourne screenings confirmed in late February 2022.

Keep an eye on cinemaaustralia.com.au for more Some Happy Day screenings as they’re announced. 

Anyway… Enjoy.
