About the listing

‘Big in Japan’, co-directed by ex – Port Campbell resident and regular visitor – Lachlan McLeod. Lachlan will also be available for a Q and A at the end of the screening.  

Big In Japan (Australian: Documentary 2017) What is fame? Why do we want it? And what does it take for an ordinary person to get it? After hearing about the huge demand for foreign talents in Japan, three Aussie filmmakers ship their lives and girlfriends to Tokyo on an outrageous DIY mission to make 'ordinary' Dave famous. Along the way, they meet an eclectic ensemble of gaijin tarento (foreign talents) at various stages of the celebrity journey: a feisty Aussie cross-dresser, a starry-eyed Canadian J-pop wannabe and veteran TV sweetheart, Bob "The Beast" Sapp. But just how far must they go to reach the masses that real celebrity requires?

Membership is $35. ($30 for students) There is a $10 fee for guests.
