National Award: Sally Ingleton for ‘John Gollings-Eye for Architecture’

Sally Ingleton has produced and directed a remarkable documentary, John Gollings: Eye for Architecture, which both documents his distinguished career and provides an insight into the volatile lives of people who make architecture.

Supported by SBS, Film Victoria and other sponsor groups and at some 57 minutes long, this film shows Gollings broad range of interests – from photographing large commercial works to his long-term archaeological project in India.

For architects, the film gives insight into a profession which is trying to make exciting and enduring buildings under difficult circumstances.

For students of architecture in Melbourne, Ingleton enables us to better understand the culture of Melbourne architects.

For those who know John Gollings, he comes through as a confident yet unpretentious, well-grounded master of his profession.
