The Navigator

The Navigator

Distributed by the ABC and Fairfax Media on ANZAC Day 2013

Fuelled by a sense of adventure and obligation, cocky teenager Ray Carlton enlisted in World War II as an air force navigator. Seventy years later he revisits those tragic and extraordinary years in an attempt to understand how they have come to define his life.

Growing up, I had heard the same stories from my grandfather over and over again. I wanted to document them on camera for posterity. It was only after I filmed my grandfather that I realised that I could turn his story into a short film.
