Baz Luhrmann discusses adapting his film ‘Australia’ into a TV miniseries

The new Hulu miniseries, “Faraway Downs,” is set in Australia’s far north on the cusp of World War II. It’s a story with war, romance and the star power of Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman. It’s also a rare instance of one of the world’s leading filmmakers reworking his own earlier material into something new. Jeffrey Brown spoke with director Baz Luhrmann for our arts and culture series, CANVAS.
