The process diary of film director Glendyn Ivin

PUBERTY BLUES

Glendyn Ivin

Moved to Sydney this week to begin pre-production on Puberty Blues! We are making eight, one hour episodes inspired by the original book. I say 'the book' as opposed to 'the film', not that I don't like the film, I think it's great! But it's a different approach to take when going back to the source material, rather than 'remaking' a film. The book doesn't necessarily tell a great story (although it does), nor is it beautifully written (although it is), I guess to me what is unique and special about the book is that it provides a wonderfully blunt and extremely honest recollection of what it was like to be a teenager, growing up on the beaches south of Sydney in mid 70's. Kathy Lette and Gabrielle Carey wrote Puberty Blues when they were only eighteen years old. It's a detailed autobiographical account of their shared misadventures of when they were just thirteen years old (!!!). It's the authenticy that leaps off the pages. No-0ne else but those two girls could have written such a vivid account of the highs and lows of the sex and drugs and surfing with such detail, naivety and the unbridled enthusiasm of youth.

Puberty Blues 'the series' (produced by John Edwards and Imogen Banks and written by Tony McNamara, Fiona Seres and Alice Bell) will still be set in the seventies and although it will feature many of the details, characters and narrative beats of the book, essentially it's a 're-imagining' of the world documented in the book in all it's sad, funny and at times brutal truths.
