Midnight Oil 1984 – available on DVD

Madman Entertainment will release director Ray Argall’s documentary MIDNIGHT OIL 1984 in cinemas May 10 for a limited season around Australia.

MIDNIGHT OIL 1984 will offer audiences the chance to see the band up close and personal on the big screen for the first time. The film features incredible unseen footage of the band in the years when they became Australia’s most iconic group while also balancing Peter Garrett’s first foray into politics. Director Ray Argall has created an inspiring testament to the power of music and creativity to engage and unite audiences.


MIDNIGHT OIL 1984 is the story of the sweat-soaked, hardworking rock and roll band whose music galvanised a generation of young Australians and inspired them to believe in the power of music to change the world.

Featuring the biggest hits from some of their most legendary shows, the movie gives you an Access All Areas pass to see the band behind the scenes and where the action is. Feel the electric energy on stage and witness the personal struggles of the band members as they try to balance the equally compelling demands of both music and politics when lead singer Peter Garrett decides to join the race for an Australian Government Senate seat.

A vivid portrait of the era and the songs that embodied it, MIDNIGHT OIL 1984 is an up close and personal look at the iconic rock band, seen on the big screen for the first time.
