COMING SOON TO CINMEAS AND PARAMOUNT +

SYNOPSIS:

New Farm cinemas will be holding a special Q & A screening with AACTA Award winning director Macario De Souza (Bra Boys) and cast on 12 August.

Premiering at the 2022 Sydney Film Festival to a sold out audience, 6 Festivals follows Maxie, Summer and James who share a deep bond and love for music. James (Rory Potter) is the entrepreneur of the trio, his sights set on a career as a promoter. Summer (Yasmin Honeychurch) has an incredible singing voice. Maxie (Rasmus King, Bosch & Rockit, SFF 2021) is the maestro of mischief. When James receives a devastating diagnosis, the friends – each with burdens to bear – throw themselves into a whirlwind of festivals in an attempt to escape reality. Featuring Birri Gubba and Wonnarua woman Guyala Bayles and top Australian acts Dune Rats, G Flip, Bliss n Eso, B Wise, Peking Duk, Ruby Fields, Jerome Farah, Kobie Dee and more – and fantastic footage shot at actual festivals.

6 Festivals was shot at leading Australian music festivals and locations in Queensland, New South Wales and Canberra through 2020 and 2021. Director and co-writer Macario De Souza was inspired to create 6 Festivals from his own personal experience as a touring musician, music fan, surfer and the environment he grew up in.

Macario De Souza comments; “Music festivals are a rite of passage for young Australians. Everything about that world is exciting to me. The pre-festival anticipation, the road trip, the surf along the way, the chance of love, lifetime memories with mates, your favourite bands live, the adrenaline of thousands of punters screaming, the after parties, the come down/hangover, the dreaded drive home and the excitement for the next festival! It’s a place where you can momentarily escape your normal world and lose yourself collectively with your crew”.

Season running 21 July – 13 August

SYNOPSIS:

In Flaming Tree Grove, life appears to be picture perfect. Security and privacy are coveted and seclusion is its own reward, until the day when little Ruby Moon sets off to visit her grandmother at the end of the cul-de-sac and is never seen again.

The neighbourhood fractures into grief and suspicion in the search for answers to a terrible deprivation and potential crime. Ray and Sylvie Moon struggle to come to terms with the disappearance of their six year old daughter, and hoping to trigger someone’s memory of having seen Ruby they keep a child mannequin who is dressed in the same clothes Ruby was last seen in.

The case has long gone cold, and they are almost ready to give up hope when a parcel containing the arm of Ruby’s doll arrives on their doorstep. Desperate for answers, they go up and down the street to re-interview their eccentric neighbours, any of whom could be responsible, including a bible-thumping elderly woman, an ex-soldier who still lives with his mother, Ruby’s creepy babysitter and even a mad scientist. The strangest of all is “The Wizard” – a former runaway who returned home to find his parents had moved away. He is never seen, but will often knock on the Moons’ door.

Haunted by their missing child, Ray and Sylvie descend further into a nightmarish world where the boundaries between the real and imaginary become increasingly blurred.

Where is Ruby and who knows what happened to her? Did she ever exist?

Written by Matt Cameron in 2003, Ruby Moon is a contemporary play that explores the grim mythology of the missing child in Australian folklore, about the prevailing fear of our times and looks at the nature of that unease that lurks in the world that we live in. It combines elements of absurdism, gothic horror, black comedy, and fairy tales with the paranoia of post-9/11 suburbia as well as drawing inspiration from real-life headlines about missing children
