Moving war drama The Water Diviner marks renowned actor Russell Crowe’s first deviation into the world of directing – and to mark the film’s release, we had the pleasure of sitting down with Crowe to discuss the project.

Crowe tells us of his experience directing for the first time, and what it was about this particular story that meant so much to him, while he also discusses the current state of the Australian film industry, and why it’s important that filmmakers remain on home soil. to make movies.

The Water Diviner is released on April 3rd.
