LIMITED SESSIONS FROM AUGUST 11

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.

SYNOPSIS:

In 19th century Italy, young PINOCCHIO is brought to life by a brilliant woodcarver Maestro Jepetto, but sadly runs away from his master’s home, eager to see the world.

He teams up with TIBALT, his friend the horse, and comes across a travelling circus, with the cunning MODJAFOCCO as its director and puppet master. Having made the talking puppet PINOCCHIO the highlight of the show, he sells out in every town, while his minions CAT and FOX rob the houses of those who attend his shows.

However, PINNOCHIO is clueless about this. He falls in love with BELLA, a gymnast and MODJAFOCCO ‘s foster daughter. He can’t hope she reciprocates as he’s only a doll, not a real human being.  FANTOZZI, who works as a clown at the circus, gives PINOCCHIO a good piece of advice: he tells him to seek the help of a witch that goes by the name of LUCILDE.  Scared, but filled with hope, PINOCCHIO sets out on an incredible trip in his quest to become a real boy.
