  • Production

    It was Storm's second feature, following his debut with 27A and after an unsuccessful attempt to make another movie called Angel Gear.

    I became aware that all the films being made in Australia were period films, Picnic at Hanging Rock, The Getting of Wisdom, Between Wars. I felt this reflected a society that was unable to come to terms with where it was at. I know you have to look into the past and find your heroes but it seemed to me that it was reflective of a desire not to face up to where we were at. That also coincided with where I was at personally in my relationship to women and to Haydn [former collaborator Haydn Keenan], so I thought I should make a film about leaving the past behind and coming to terms with the present, moving into the future with a positive attitude. That's what I thought I should do personally and that's what I felt Australia should do. It led to In Search of Anna.

    The budget was meant to be $231,000 but went more than $100,000 over. $50,000 was provided by the Victorian Film Corporation. Shooting began on 28 February 1977.

    Reception

    According to Storm the film performed "really well, relatively" at the Australian box office, running for six weeks. It was also nominated for six AFI Awards.
