Creative Types With Virginia Trioli on ABC – It is blazing hot on the claypans of the Ilarpa Claypans outside Alice Springs where Warwick Thornton meets Virginia and explains how this was a place of great freedom for the young, wild Warwick.

As he drives across the red mud, he says landscape is at the centre of his work, and that filmmaking is a craft that has be practised over and again.

Actor Cate Blanchett tells us there is a” wonderful sense of creative danger” to his work. David Stratton describes him as the consummate filmmaker.

In the shed of his son’s house where he is bunking now, Warwick shreds on an old guitar and takes Virginia through his archive: he’s kept everything, especially the awards for his films, including the Camera D’Or at Cannes for his debut feature about two kids in Alice Springs, Samson and Delilah.

Going through a box of old photos and memorabilia, Warwick finds the first hand-written draft of Samson and Delilah.

Cate Blanchett says there is “an inherent restlessness” in Warwick.

Back at the claypans Warwick shoots a new “Democracy Sausage” photographic series about the anger he feels at the referendum vote.

At the Wigley Waterhole Warwick walks us through a dry riverbed to his happy childhood place of swimming and escape: he says he feels stronger here because of his family’s memories.

Back at Warwick’s son’s place, Virginia is helping Warwick prepare dinner for his extended family, and recalls the fear of putting himself on film in his remarkable one-man documentary The Beach.
