Making Samson & Delilah shows the fascinating story behind the making of one of the most acclaimed Australian films.
A director, a producer, two teenage actors, a small crew and six weeks in the desert. Throw in an observational documentary filmmaker (Beck Cole) and the result is a candid and affectionate behind-the-scenes look at the making of the hit feature film Samson & Delilah.
Spanning the 18-month process of the creation and release of Warwick Thornton's debut feature, Beck Cole's documentary explores the rollercoaster experience through the eyes of Samson & Delilah's two young stars—from the first casting calls to walking the red carpet at Cannes.
