Revelation Perth International Film Festival, in association with Cinema Australia, presents Australian Revelations as a celebration of Australian film via monthly screenings.
New Australian film Broke will have its Western Australian premiere at Australian Revelations on 26 April.
Gambling, footy and the sometimes lonely environments of the suburbs form the backdrop of this terrific new Australian dramatic feature. Selected for screening at multiple festivals around the world – including Manchester, Ankara, Cardiff, Singapore, Los Angeles and Uruguay – this will be the film’s first, and likely only, screening in Western Australia.
Featuring a top-notch cast of including Steve Le Marquand, Steve Bastoni, Brendan Powell, Claire van der Boom and veteran Max Cullen, the film was crowdfunded on a shoestring budget.
According to actor Max Cullen, the people who made this film were – literally – broke.
“It was ‘crowdfunded’ on a very small budget, only a handful of cast and crew were paid at all,” Max said.
“It was a miracle that the end product was so extraordinary. Everyone involved worked hard and, well, a lot of love went into making Broke – and it shows.”
Revelation Director Richard Sowada said Broke is a film having enormous local and international success. “It’s a great privilege to be part of building its Australian reputation,” Richard said.
Preceding Broke will be William Paul Hansen, a short film from FTI’s Indigenous Community Stories program. William Paul Hansen is the story of an indigenous former Army serviceman who served in Vietnam, and his story of survival.
Broke will screen at The Backlot Perth on Tuesday 26 April from 6.30pm with a post-screening Q+A with writer/director Heath Davis.
All tickets $20 and available here.
