Red Hill is an Australian thriller/action/western written, directed, produced and edited by Patrick Hughes, making his feature film debut. When I spoke to Hughes he talked about working with actors Steve Bisley and Tom E. Lewis – legends of the Australian film industry – and star on the rise, actor Ryan Kwanten. Hughes also discussed the legacy of the western and how Australia’s history and environment make it such an ideal country to set a modern day western in.

This interview was recorded on Thursday 11 November 2010 and then played on Film Buff’s Forecast (Triple R, 3RRR 102.7FM) on Saturday 27 Novmeber 2010.
