Philip Noyce on Catch a Fire

Philip Noyce shooting Catch a FireDirector Philip Noyce has had a new lease of life in recent years. Since opting to direct more political films like The Quiet American and Rabbit Proof Fence his work has taken on a new urgency and energy.

His latest is Catch a Fire which tells the true story of ANC freedom fighter Patrick Chamusso and his struggles under the Apartheid regime in South Africa during the 1980s.

I recently spoke to Philip about the film and the change of direction in his career.
