Black comedy about a blind man, Martin, who takes photographs as “proof” that the world really is as others describe it to him. The film explores his antagonistic relationships with Celia, who cleans and cooks for him and habitually rearranges the furniture in the house, and with Andy, a mate he thinks he can trust. PROOF is blackly humorous at some points, poignant at others and the music from Australia’s NOT DROWNING, WAVING was singled out for particular praise. This was the first feature from Jocelyn Moorhouse – she subsequently directed HOW TO MAKE AN AMERICAN QUILT and produced numerous features including MURIEL’S WEDDING.
