NOW RE-MASTERED! (available as DVD and DCP)
"A DAZZLING TAPESTRY ... distinctly different ... outstanding." - David Stratton, Variety, 1993.
"A TRAILBLAZER ... still one of the most intriguing and unusual works ever to have been made in the country." - David Stratton, Weekend Australian, 2021
From Indigenous visual artist, filmmaker and photographer, Tracey Moffatt: three tales of the supernatural are combined in one extraordinary feature film, rich in virtuosic design, drama and movement.
In her first feature film, Tracey Moffatt stretches our imaginations with the same intensity and dark humour of her photographic work and her two previous short films that have been lauded around the world.
Both of her short films, Nice Coloured Girls and Night Cries: a Rural Tragedy, (available from Ronin Films) gained Moffatt a reputation for vivid, emotionally charged and highly original work – a reputation equalled by her standing as a visual artist in the medium of still photography.
beDevil is an innovative rendering of three childhood mysteries. Moffatt's breathtaking style - drawing on both her Aboriginal and Irish heritages as well as cinema influences as diverse as Vincente Minnelli and Masaki Kobayashi - makes beDevil one of the most remarkable feature debuts in Australian cinema.
beDevil consists of three haunting episodes:
CHOO CHOO CHOO CHOO
LOVIN' THE SPIN I'M IN

"beDevil captures the allusive quality of parochial, local, familial ghost stories, the sort of stories that are passed down through generations, that are repeated and embroidered upon so that eventually they are woven into quotidian discourse and a passing reference can evoke a complex texture of ghostliness." - Lesley Stern, Photofile
