Camera Natura

Director: Ross Gibson

Institute History

  • 1986 Sundance Film Festival


Camera Natura is a rare gem of a film, a brilliant collage of out-of-context sounds and images from other Australian films. It is, in the minds of many, the one film that best describes everything that is “Australian.” If you ever wondered how and why Mad Max came up from Down Under, see this film!

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
