1986 | CTC | 92 mins| Australia | D: Pat Fiske

CIFF is proud to present a newly restored version of  ROCKING THE FOUNDATIONS as part of the NFSA RESTORES program.

Looking like new,  Pat Fiske’s landmark film continues to have keen relevance today. One of the first women to be accepted into the NSW Builders Labourers Federation, Fiske traces the development of a union whose social and political activities challenged the notion of what a union should be. Her history of the Green Bans introduced by the BLF in the 1970s to preserve inner-city parkland and historic buildings, was hailed by critic Sylvia Lawson as “A miracle of orchestration … Documentary? Just call it cinema.”  The film launched Fiske’s long career as a key figure in Australia’s independent filmmaking community. Her most recent film as producer is Oyster, also screening at CIFF.
