The Kids Are Alright

Introduced by Cate Blanchett.

Jocelyn Moorhouse and PJ Hogan are two of this country's most celebrated movie directors. The success of their debut films had Hollywood calling and they have since worked with some of the biggest names in film.

They are also the parents of four children, two of whom have severe autism. And the experience of raising those children has shaped their personalities and careers.

Jocelyn gave up her career to concentrate on her son and daughter's therapy. She didn't expect to direct again.

But in 2015, 18 years after making her last film, she made a triumphant return with The Dressmaker.

In this intimate portrait, the family speaks candidly about the challenges, heartbreak and unexpected joys of living with two severely autistic children.
