Set against the backdrop of Melbourne's late '70s punk rock scene, Dogs in Space chronicles life in a chaotic, squalid share-house. Hippies, addicts, students and radicals fill their days and nights with sex, drugs, parties and television. Writer/director RICHARD LOWENSTEIN balances a series of chaotic vignettes with the central story of the romance between housemates Sam (MICHAEL HUTCHENCE), the lead singer of the band, Dogs in Space and his lover Anna (SASKIA POST) as it spirals out of control.
Hutchence is a brilliant symbol of reckless youth in this, his first dramatic screen role, giving Dogs in Space instant cult status upon its release.
This first ever DVD release offers a wealth of extras, including Lowenstein's recently premiered documentary on the Melbourne underground music scene of the time, 'We're Livin' On Dog Food', which features - among other treats - exclusive footage of Michael Hutchence on the set of Dogs In Space.
