Creative label for films written & directed by Martyn Park
Twenty years to life.
After writing twenty-two feature film scripts over a ten-year period. And having directed five feature films. I finally allowed myself the indulgence of writing an autobiographical account of my life from the beginnings of being born in England, immigrating to Australia as Ten Pound Poms at the age of six, where I grew up in amongst the surf culture of Cronulla Beach, up to my twenty-first birthday and the tragic death of my mother in a car accident.
The journeys of all migrants, although different, share many of the same problems of integration, regardless of their country of origin. They share many of the same stories. Twenty years to life is one of those stories.
