NITRAM (2021)
Starring Caleb Landry Jones, Essie Davis, Judy Davis, Anthony Lapaglia and Sean Keenan. Directed by Justin Kurzel.

Nitram lives with his mother and father in suburban Australia in the Mid 1990s. He lives a life of isolation and frustration at never being able to fit in. That is until he unexpectedly finds a close friend in a reclusive heiress, Helen. However when that friendship meets its tragic end, and Nitram’s loneliness and anger grow, he begins a slow descent into a nightmare that culminates in the most nihilistic and heinous of acts.

REVIEWS Nitram - Into the abyss of one of our greatest tragedies

Starring Adam Goodes, Gilbert McAdam, Stan Grant and Nathan Buckley. Directed by Daniel Gordon.

A feature documentary that uses the remarkable and inspirational story of AFL legend Adam Goodes as the prism through which to tell a deeper and more powerful story about race, identity, and belonging. Using his own personal experience of events as well as other key figures involved, the film follows Goodes’ story, from his AFL career highlights in the Sydney Swans, through to the racist tumult of the crowd-booing and subsequent #istandwithadam movement, and to his reconnection with his indigenous culture and the land as a way to heal, this is an important film which will inspire conversation around racism in sport and in general, in our culture.

2040 (2019)
Starring Damon Gameau, Eva Lazzaro, Zoe Gameau and Davini Malcolm. Directed by Damon Gameau.

Award-winning director Damon Gameau ('That Sugar Film') embarks on journey to explore what the future could look like by the year 2040 if we simply embraced the best solutions already available to us to improve our planet and shifted them rapidly into the mainstream. Structured as a visual letter to his 4-year-old daughter, Damon blends traditional documentary with dramatised sequences and high-end visual effects to create a vision board of how these solutions could regenerate the world for future generations.

REVIEWS 2040 - A hopeful look into our environmental future

Starring Andy Watson, Beth Watson, David Palu, Juneen Borkent, Huia Apiata, Lomaks Tangihaer, Cameron Judson and Jacob Graham. Directed by Florian Habicht.

As night falls at Spookers, dozens of seemingly ordinary people become freaks, zombies and chainsaw-wielding clowns. Every weekend come rain, hail or shine, this diverse group of amateur performers unite to terrify punters at the southern hemisphere’s largest scream park, situated in a former psychiatric hospital. Director Florian Habicht reveals the transformative and paradoxically lifesaving power of belonging to a community that celebrates fear.

REVIEWS Spookers - A real horror show

Starring Stephen Curry - Edward 'Teddy' Brown, Brendan Cowell - Rick, Damon Gameau - Stavros, Pallavi Sharda - Anjali, Brenton Thwaites - Mark and David Lyons - The Prince. Directed by Boyd Hicklin.

An inspirational journey from the heart of Australia to the soul of India. It’s the story of one man who refuses to lose his park cricket team to the realities of growing up.
