Set against the backdrop of Melbourne's late 70s punk rock scene, Dogs in Space chronicles life in a chaotic, squalid share house. Hippies, addicts, students and radicals fill their days and nights with sex, drugs and parties. A series of chaotic vignettes are balanced with the central romance between Sam (Michael Hutchence), the lead singer of the band, Dogs in Space and his lover Anna (Saskia Post) as the house spirals out of control. Hutchence (of INXS fame) is a brilliant symbol of reckless youth in this, his first dramatic screen role, giving Dogs in Space instant cult status upon its original release in 1986. Unscreened for over twenty years, this classic film has been painstakingly restored from the original negative and remixed in 5.1 digital sound.
