ONLY IN CINEMAS JUNE 22

SYNOPSIS:

New Zealand in the 1830s is a Māori world, dominated by tribal wars. 

Seeking redemption from a dark past, lay preacher Thomas Munro (GUY PEARCE) is on board a trading vessel heading to the newly established town of Epworth, a British settlement in that far corner of the world.

When the ship anchors for repairs, Munro finds himself caught up in a battle between Māori tribes and witnesses the slaughter of innocents at the hands of chief Akatārewa (LAWRENCE MAKOARE). Munro manages to save the life of Rangimai (TIOREORE NGATAI-MELBOURNE), the daughter of Maianui (ANTONIO TE MAIOHA), a rival chief whose land Epworth leases in a delicate arrangement.

As Munro begins to experience the white townsfolk’s entrenched racism and paranoia towards the Māori, he finds himself increasingly ostracised within the community he is meant to serve and realises he has been brought to this isolated British outpost merely to add the veneer of civilisation.

After one of Maianui’s men is murdered under mysterious circumstances, Munro and Rangimai make the difficult journey into prohibited lands ruled by Māori warlords, in the hope of repairing the injustice. However, Munro soon realises he is a pawn in a strategic play of power, and with bloody war between the two dominant tribes now inevitable, he must decide what role he will play and whether his faith is real or of any value.

As unsettling events unfold, his “lucky break” takes a dark turn. The director (Adam Goldberg), aiming for authenticity, subjects the struggling actor to humiliating treatment, forcing him to confront past traumas and accelerating his decline. Witnessing his suffering, Anthony’s estranged daughter (Ryan Simpkins) turns to the film’s priest advisor (David Hyde Pierce) for help. Has the pressure of making the film sent Anthony back to his old addictions, or has it opened a portal to somethin more sinister?

FIESTA TIME IS NEAR! THE HSBC SPANISH FILM FESTIVAL RETURNS THIS JUNE – JULY WITH THE FESTIVAL’S LARGEST LINE-UP TO DATE

The HSBC Spanish Film Festival presented by Palace returns this June to July with a fiesta of films awaiting. The curated line-up, the festival’s largest yet, featuring films from Spain and Latin America and will screen nationally from 11th June.

This year’s festival Centrepiece is THE TEACHER WHO PROMISED THE SEA (El Maestro que Prometió el Mar), which recently won the Audience award at the 2024 Gaudí Awards. The acclaimed drama stars Enric Auquer (the lead from last year’s festival hit Two Many Chefs) and Laia Costa, and tells the true story of Antoni Benaiges, a teacher who brought progressive teaching methods to a small village in 1930s Burgos.

Featuring in the New Spanish Cinema selection is JOKES AND CIGARETTES (Saben aquell), directed by multiple Goya Award winner David Trueba. The drama stars a transformative David Verdaguer as Eugenio, the famous chain-smoking Catalan comedian of the 1960s and 70s, known for his deadpan delivery, tinted glasses and trademark black attire. A special festival preview of this film will take place one week prior to the opening of the festival.

The 2024 Special Presentation is a collection of films that encapsulate the themes of ‘Female Liberation Sexuality and Empowerment’ including UN AMOR and VERA AND THE PLEASURE OF OTHERS (Vera y el placer de los otros). A striking drama from prolific director Isabel Coixet, UN AMOR stars Laia Costa and Hovik Keuchkerian as new neighbours in a village in rural Spain who become entangled in a web of passion.
