JOE CAMILLERI has been rocking the pubs and clubs of Australia for 45 years, as well as making close to 30 CDs and producing countless more.

This documentary has multiple threads - the migrant story of Joe’s family spanning from Malta to Melbourne, a history of some of the Melbourne music scene over the last 45 years via Joe’s two main bands Jo Jo Zep & the Falcons and The Black Sorrows, and a studio insight into the making of his latest double album which is due for release later this year.

It is a fascinating look at the man and his passion for music.
