Bendigo Writers Festival: Words and Images – with Anne Manne, Robyn Davidson and Raimond Galta

“Honey, you’re not going to like what I’m going to do to your book,” is what Robyn was told by a prospective producer of her book. Ultimately the true stories these writers recorded could be seen as having be made into fiction films, though the writers understand the film making process and accept that “They tried their best.” These writers were not involved in the screenwriting process, and did not expect to be. When they were asked questions about the script, their answers were not listened to, and they did not expect them to be. The only time they were involved was on specific request, and they were surprised and happy by the inclusion.
