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
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.
