One afternoon Peter Tammer, a friend of Paul Cox since the late sixties, visited Paul in his Albert Park home. This video is a record of the informal chat which took place at Paul’s kitchen table.What you see is intimate, engaging storytelling, a cheeky 'burst of light' touching many subjects across decades and across continents. Peter Tammer, himself an Australian independent filmmaker, made these memories even more alive by carefully choosing images and film clips from Paul’s body of work; photographs such as the "Nude in the Window", and many clips from Paul's less well-known films such as "Calcutta" and "Island".
So much to learn about Paul and his friends in the sixties and seventies through this intimate, extremely personal, light-hearted chat.

Paul Cox arrived in Australia in 1965 and established himself as a leading Melbourne photographer. He took a keen interest in cinema and began experimenting with film-making soon after he arrived. In 1969 Peter Tammer moved into the shop and dwelling next door to Paul's studio in Punt Rd. Peter had started making low-budget 16mm films in 1963. A strong friendship developed in which each person influenced the other. Peter was a strong admirer of Paul's photographs while Paul was attracted to experimental side of Peter's film-making, including the films of his circle of friends such as Jim Wilson and many others who were instrumental in setting up the Melbourne Filmmakers' Co-op.
After some years in which each produced a number of 16mm film productions Paul graduated to his first 35mm feature film “Inside Looking Out” in 1977. The cinematography of this film was shared between Peter and Brian Gracey, a colleague of Paul's teaching Photography at Prahran Technical College. Paul's career as a film director really took off after the film “Lonely Hearts” enjoyed a mainstream release and critical acclaim. In "The Nude in the Window" we retrace the films Paul made in those formative years between 1965 and 1977.
