EYE OF THE BEHOLDER

STEPHAN ELLIOTT, best known in America for his runaway hit comedy "The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert," makes a departure with this surrealistic love story. Elliott is a native of Sydney, Australia. He made his feature debut with "Frauds" starring pop star Phil Collins, which went on to competition at Cannes, along with the Toronto and Hong Kong film festivals. The film won the Grand Prix at the Brussels Sci-fi and Fantasy Film Festival.

Elliott followed "Frauds" with a script he wrote in just ten days: "The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert." The freewheeling musical comedy followed the unlikely tale of drag queens trapped in the Australian Outback, and went on to defy the cynics by becoming one of the most successful Australian films of all time and an international phenomenon. The film won first prizes at the San Francisco and Seattle Film Festivals, became the talk of Cannes, winning the audience-selected Grand Prix and went on to garner the Academy Award for Best Costume Design.

Elliott's next feature, "Welcome to Woop Woop," starring Jonathan Schaech and Rod Taylor, was an official selection special screening at the 1997 Cannes Film Festival. He will next direct "The Husband I Bought," based on the Ayn Rand novel.
