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”.

SYNOPSIS:

An Aussie grandmother living with dementia captured the hearts of millions online – and now her story is being told
on the big screen.

Fresh from sold out sessions at the Sydney Film Festival comes the heart-warming story, Everybody’s Oma.
Filmmaker Jason van Genderen is obsessed with making home videos about his family, and their Dutch matriarch, Hendrika van Genderen, otherwise known as Oma.

He and his wife Megan embrace caring for Oma’s dementia in increasingly whimsical ways, accidentally turning her into an online celebrity. Their unassuming home videos, shot during the pandemic, attract over 100,000,000 views globally.

Everybody’s Oma follows the NSW Central Coast family’s footsteps as they navigate Oma’s failing health under the spotlight of an enthusiastic audience made up of a global community who started following Oma’s story on the Facebook page Oma’s Applesauce.

Join us at Dendy Coorparoo on 2 August for a special Preview Screening followed by a Q & A with Jason and his wife Megan.

Everybody’s Oma opens for general sessions 11 August.

Releasing to DVD and Digital on July 20

SYNOPSIS:

When DI Rachita Ray (Parminder Nagra; ER, Bend It Like Beckham), a British Asian policewoman new to homicide is assigned to investigate the suspected honour killing of a young Muslim man, she quickly realises the suspects can’t be guilty. The evidence against the two brothers from a British Hindu family is flimsy at best but her attempts at conveying this to her superiors and her colleagues fall on deaf ears. Hidden biases and a keenness to wrap the case up mean no one is listening to her until her probing leads the team to a much more sinister crime. As she uncovers a complex web of deceit within organised crime, she also lays bare the wounds deep within herself that she’s spent a lifetime ignoring – wounds that are born from a desperate desire to ‘fit in’, despite not looking the part.

The compelling new Crime Thriller from Jed Mercurio (Line of Duty)

Featuring 4 x 60 min dynamic episodes

Release Date: July 20, 2022

Rated: M

PPR: $29.95

In Cinemas JUNE 9

SYNOPSIS:

Sassoon was a complex man who survived the horrors of fighting in the First World War and was decorated for his bravery but who became a vocal critic of the government’s continuation of the war when he returned from service. His poetry was inspired by his experiences on the Western Front and he became one of the leading war poets of the era. Adored by members of the aristocracy as well as stars of London’s literary and stage world, he embarked on affairs with several men as he attempted to come to terms with his homosexuality. At the same time, broken by the horror of war, he made his life’s journey a quest for salvation, trying to find it within the conformity of marriage and religion.

His story is one of a troubled man in a fractured world searching for peace and self-acceptance, something which speaks as meaningfully to the modern world as it did then.
