"Downriver". Screening from DCP followed by Q&A with Grant Scicluna, Jannine Barnes and Laszlo Baranyai HSC ACS - Thursday April 21st
On Thursday April 21st immerse yourself in the intriguing "Downriver", directed by Grant Scicluna and filmed by ACS Victorian member Laszlo Baranyai HSC ACS which premiered in 2015 at Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF).
A tale of redemption and reconciliation, Downriver is the haunting and confronting feature debut from award-winning MIFF Accelerator alumnus, writer/director Grant Scicluna. Boasting a knock-out cast including Reef Ireland (Puberty Blues) and Kerry Fox (Intimacy), the MIFF Premiere Fund-supported Downriver walks in the footsteps of films such as The Boys and heralds the emergence of an exciting new voice in Australian filmmaking.
Sometimes the path to redemption is paved in sin. James, 18, has been released from juvenile detention after serving time for his involvement in the suspected drowning of a young boy in a river years earlier. Ravaged with uncertainty, dealing with an estranged family and forced to face the dead boy’s mother, James is set upon a journey of self-discovery, shocking revelations and danger as questions surrounding the boy’s death brim to the surface. Old friendships are questioned, family ties are tested and lives are put on the line as James must find his path to the truth. It’s a path that will lead him Downriver…
