Damian Callinan: Double Feature

Presented by the Clocktower Centre


A romantic romp through post-WW2 Melbourne!

The surprise discovery of his mother’s 1946 diary leads multi award-winning comedian, actor and writer Damian Callinan on a cinematic, romantic romp through post-war Melbourne.

The diary kept by the then 19-year-old Kathleen poses more questions than answers. With suitors lining up, will Jack Bowlen ever get the Canadian two-step right? Will Ron Rogan keep his hands to himself? But — most importantly for Damian Callinan’s very existence — will Kathleen notice the dapper fly boy who has just returned from active service?

The writer and star of feature film The Merger uses his renowned storytelling prowess to cast his parents in a funny and poignant double feature of love and loss.


“A storyteller at the top of his game. Such dexterous movement between the funny, the sad and the beautiful."
– The Age
