Ted Wilson's directorial debut turns storytelling conventions on its head. 

Ted Wilson, played by Ted Wilson, takes on the semi-autobiographical tale of a Melbourne-based writer out of work, returning home to Hobart to visit his family and revive his writing career with a new book about Tasmanian upper-order batsmen. Ted needs to score an interview with the most famous of Tasmanian upper-order batsmen for his book to be taken seriously. His golden goose is David Boon. 

What makes Under the Cover of Cloud unique is that it's ultimately a fiction film, shot largely documentary style, casting Wilson's own family to play fictional versions of themselves, including himself. The result is something wholesome, real, raw, pioneering, and incredibly familiar to almost every Australian. 

Edited down from its original 14-and-a-half hour cut, Under the Cover of Cloud moves at pace, with precious moments of light and shade to propel its narrative masterfully.

Special Guest Ted Wilson in attendance.
