Australian Revelations - October
Mon. 31 October 2016, 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm AWST
After screenings at the Sydney Film Festival and the internationally regarded Canadian documentary festival Hot Docs, Hotel Coolgardie comes to town with its special perspective on life in an isolated country town.
From Finland come backpackers Lina and Steph looking for a way to make some fast cash to support their travels. An employment agency places them at the Denver City Hotel in the isolated town of Coolgardie - a tough place to adjust to for anyone. This documentary chronicles their time at the hotel, their relationships with the locals and unusual bonds that develop between all.
It's an excellent film by anyone's standards.
