New Australian documentary, Hotel Coolgardie will be having its Perth premiere next month as part of Australian Revelations – a celebrations of Australian film presented by Revelation Perth International Film Festival in association with Cinema Australia.
After screenings at the Sydney Film Festival and the internationally regarded Canadian documentary festival Hot Docs, Hotel Coolgardie comes to town with its special perspective on life in an isolated country town.
From Finland come backpackers Lina and Steph looking for a way to make some fast cash to support their travels. An employment agency places them at the Denver City Hotel in the isolated town of Coolgardie – a tough place to adjust to for anyone. This documentary chronicles their time at the hotel, their relationships with the locals and unusual bonds that develop between all.
It’s an excellent film by anyone’s standards.
