When Federal Agent Aaron Falk returns to his home town after an absence of over twenty years to attend the funeral of his childhood friend, Luke, who allegedly killed his wife and child before taking his own life – a victim of the madness that has ravaged this community after more than a decade of drought. When Falk reluctantly agrees to stay and investigate the crime, he opens up an old wound – the death of 17- year-old Ellie Deacon. Falk begins to suspect these two crimes, separated by decades, are connected. As he struggles to prove not only Luke’s innocence but also his own, Falk finds himself pitted against the prejudice towards him and and pent-up rage of a terrified community.

REVIEWS Little Monsters - No brains, all heart

Dylan Branson's life is permanently derailed when an ominous pattern of events repeats itself in exactly the same manner every day, ending at precisely 2:22pm. When he falls for Sarah (Palmer), a beautiful woman whose life is threatened by these strange events, Dylan must solve the mystery of 2:22 to preserve a love whose second chance has finally come.

REVIEWS 2:22 - Mind-bending metaphysical mumbo-jumbo

DOWN UNDER (2016)
Starring Lincoln Younes, Damon Herriman, David Field, Rahel Romahn and Michael Denkha. Directed by Abe Forsythe.

A black comedy set during the aftermath of the Cronulla riots, 'Down Under' is the story of two carloads of hotheads from both sides of the fight destined to collide. Sincere, though misguided, intent gives way to farcical ineptitude as this hilarious yet poignant story of ignorance, fear and kebab-cravings unfolds, and what was meant to be a retaliation mission turns into something neither side could have imagined.
