It has been announced that Ben Young’s highly anticipated Western Australian film, Hounds of Love, will have its world premiere at the prestigious Venice Days, a sidebar of the Venice Film Festival.
“I’m so thrilled that all the wonderful and talented cast and crew, who took a risk on this small West Australian film, are been recognised on the international stage,” Young told Cinema Australia.
A suspense thriller set in the 1980s, Hounds of Love follows a 17-year-old (Ashleigh Cummings) who is abducted by a disturbed couple and realises she must enter into a game of strategy if she hopes to survive. Hounds of Love also stars Emma Booth, Stephen Curry, Susie Porter and Damian de Montemas.
The film was written by Young and produced by Melissa Kelly who also produced Blame starring Sophie Lowe.
It has not yet been announced when Australian audiences will be able to catch Hounds of Love.
The Cinema Australia team wish Ben and his team the best of luck with the film.
Venice Days runs August 31-September 10.
