The only screening of SWEET COUNTRY in Dubbo

Join multi-award winning director Warwick Thornton for the screening of Sweet Country.

This is a one-time, special screening of the film in Dubbo, followed by a Q&A session.

Sweet Country has won international awards at the Venice Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival, Adelaide Film Festival, plus many more. See the trailer here: http://www.transmissionfilms.com.au/films/sweet-country

Inspired by real events, Sweet Country is a period western set in 1929 in the outback of the Northern Territory, Australia. When Aboriginal stockman Sam (Hamilton Morris) kills white station owner Harry March (Ewen Leslie) in self-defence, Sam and his wife Lizzie (Natassia Gorey-Furber) go on the run. They are pursued across the outback, through glorious but harsh desert country.

★★★★★ "Unforgettable. A new Australian classic"
Kate Taylor – The Globe and Mail

"Warwick Thornton is a Kaytej man whose customary lands reside to the north of Alice Springs where he has lived the majority of his life. A film-maker of singularly distinctive vision, his first feature Samson and Delilah (2009) took the national and international film world by storm, winning numerous awards including the Caméra d’Or at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival. It continues to challenge, confront and seduce audiences with its visceral depiction of damaged young romance in truly dysfunctional settings of time and place." - Stills Gallery

Join us on the red carpet at the DRTCC and see the film many are calling a cinematic masterpiece.

The film event starts at 7pm sharp, followed by a Q&A with Warwick Thornton.
