DOGS IN SPACE is an iconic 1986 Australian film set in Melbourne’s “Little Band” music scene in 1978. It was directed by Richard Lowenstein (Autoluminescent: Rowland S. Howard, He Died with a Felafel in His Hand) and starred Michael Hutchence as Sam, the drug-addled frontman of the fictitious band from which the film takes its name. A stylish and chaotic film, DOGS IN SPACE is about a group of alternative music fans sharing a house in the inner Melbourne suburb of Richmond. The plotless and artistic style of the film is a legacy of Lowenstein’s background in advertising and music video production; before Dogs in Space he had served as director for a series of promotional clips for songs from the INXS album The Swing.
