Film: "Don't Throw Stones"

2014 emptybrook/Renegade Films
"Don't Throw Stones" is based on Stephen Cummings's 2009 memoir, 'Will It Be Funny Tomorrow, Billy?' and explores the career of one of Australia's finest, yet most neglected, singer/songwriters.

From his time in one of Australia's favourite bands, The Sports, through a solo career littered with critical success, public indifference, and bad timing. 'Don't Throw Stones' is a unique view of an artist trying to make it both in and out of Australia, while remaining true to himself.

Using Cummings's own words, the film also examines the affect a memoir has on those featured within its pages and the person who wrote it.

With exclusive access to Cummings and featuring appearances by Steve Kilbey, Martin Armiger, Andrew Pendlebury, Michael Gudinski, Rebecca Barnard, Joe Camilleri, Shane O'Mara, Dave Robinson and Jen Jewel Brown, 'Don't Throw Stones' puts a new spin on a career retrospective.

As Cummings says, 'Music is a way of remembering, and I guess we all remember differently.'
