Working Class Boy

Sunday October 8th 2:00pm


Based on the top selling autobiography this is the story of a boy from the poverty stricken slums of Glasgow who becomes the much loved front man of the greatest rock and roll band in Australia – Cold Chisel.


This is an inspirational story of one man’s escape from poverty, domestic violence and alcoholism.


“Working Class Boy has a heartfelt message – simple but profound – that people begin their lives in one place and end up in another.” Luke Buckmaster The Guardian.

“ I felt tears behind my eyes as the film progressed, even though I knew the story.” The Australian.

“Moving, confronting and yet, a distinct pleasure to watch” Herald Sun

Followed by Q & A with Director Mark Joffe in the Seagull Room
