CinefestOZ Film Prize Finalist, The Death and Life of Otto Bloom, directed by Cris Jones, is set to make its Western Australian premiere at CinefestOZ at the Orana Cinemas in Busselton on Thursday 25 August at 6.30pm.
The Death and Life of Otto Bloom chronicles the life and great love of an extraordinary man who experiences time in reverse – wandering blindly into the past, while remembering the future.
The film charts Bloom’s rise from scientific oddity to international superstar as he searches for love and meaning in this strange, backwards world.
Over the years, he has a string of romances while challenging our preconceived notions about life, death and the nature of time. When the world proves to be not yet ready for Bloom’s radical ideas, his fall from grace is as swift as it is tragic.
But for Bloom, the end is only the beginning…
CinefestOZ Film Prize Finalist, The Death and Life of Otto Bloom will have its WA Premiere after opening at MIFF. Be part of the glamourous audience, which will include the high profile Film Prize Jury. Afterwards get the party started at the CinefestOZ marquee, accompanied with some delicious food and drinks.
