THREE WISE COUSINS - NZ/SAMOA (PG) 89 mins
A grassroots comedy about what it takes for a New Zealand
born Samoan to transform into a ‘real island guy.’
Adam ( Neil Amituanai ) is a 22 year old New Zealand born Samoan guy who falls for Mary ( Gloria Ofa Blake.) On a ‘chance’
encounter he learns that Mary only wants to go out with a ‘real
island guy’ - not a plastic one.
Adam realizes that to get rid of his ‘plastic’ ways and impress
Mary, he’ll have to travel to Samoa and have his cousins teach
him how to be a real island guy.
For some it’s a nostalgic trip back to the islands, and for others
a first time glimpse into true Samoan culture on the big screen.
The self-funded film by first time writer-director-producer
Stallone Vaiaoga-Ioasa has been the surprise hit of the new
Zealand summer as audiences overdosed on island humour..
PAWNO - AU (MA) 86 mins
In the old pawnbroker’s in the heart of Melbourne’s Footscray, world weary Les Underwood (John Brumpton)
watches as the lives of people who come through his door
collide, change and unravel.
RAMS - ICELAND (M) 92 mins
“The quintessential modern Australian tale.” - The Age
Majestically shot in a spectacular, weather-swept valley,
this wryly observed fable about two brothers who are more
obstinate than the sheep they breed begins as a droll comedy
about rural life and grows into a graceful and mythic tale
about family, community and legacy.
“PAWNO is a gem. Funny, smart and surprising. It’s a ripper!” - Mick Molloy
“Nothing less than perfect” - Cinema Australia
“A mesmerizing Australian story. Full of superbly drawn
unforgettable characters and humour. Superbly directed.”
- Steve Vizard
“A bolt from the blue. Who said Aussie cinema was dead. It
lives in Footscray.. I loved this film, loved it, loved it!”
- Margaret Pomeraz

Who would have thought that a tale about sheep in rural
Iceland could bring tears to your eyes? Grímur Hakonarson’s
RAMS does just that
The hugely-popular winner of the Un Certain Regard Best
Film Prize at the 2015 Cannes International Film Festival
(awarded by a Jury led by Isabella Rossellini), and greeted
with a thunderous 10 minute standing ovation at its premiere, Hákonarson effortlessly balances humour and pathos
to tell a tale that feels both intimate and epic, a loving
portrait of both culture and family in a place where change
doesn’t come easily.

“LAST PARADISE” has been dubbed “the greatest
story of adrenaline and innovation” - how a bunch
of young adventurers met in the wilderness and
pushed the limits of innovation to pioneer the modern
concept of extreme sports and adventure travel. For

been a lifetime in the making and that journey has

David Gulpilil returns home with filmmaker Molly
Reynolds to explore “what happened to my culture
when it was interrupted by your culture”
ANOTHER COUNTRY is the new documentary
from celebrated Australian actor David Gulpilil and
his frequent collaborator Rolf De Heer (Charlie’s
Country). They are joined by director Molly Reynolds
for this insightful and inspiring new documentary.
“...Gulpillil’s commentary is dramatic, enlightening,
earnest, at times playful and mischievous – not unlike qualities he embodies as an actor. It is the heart
and soul of this rich, deeply thoughtful and humane
documentary, told from the perspective of a person
who appears to be divided. On one hand Gulpillil has
seen it all before, on the other he seems ever shocked
and dismayed by circumstances. What a beautiful way
to channel that dismay; what a wonderful education
