Writer and director Fin Edquist will attend a Q&A screening of his his locally-made psychological thriller Bad Girl.
Taking the award for Best Film at the Annual Western Australia Screen Awards last year, Bad Girl centres around a dark friendship between two teenage girls, Amy (Sara West) and Chloe (Samara Weaving).
Amy (Sara West) returns home to a house she doesn’t know to adopted parents she doesn’t care for in a country town where there’s nothing to do following a stint in a juvenile corrections centre. She’s done something terrible and she’s capable of much worse. Despite the love and support her parents provide, Amy plans on escaping. To make matters worse local girl Chloe (Samara Weaving) is everything she is not; in looks, manners and behaviour. Their attraction to each other is immediate and it will have dire consequences for all.
Also featuring Felicity Price (The Gift) and Benjamin Winspear (The Babadook), and with a moody score from long-time Nick Cave collaborator Warren Ellis, Bad Girl offers a boldly dramatic twist on the femme fatale.
Bad Girl was produced by WA local Tenille Kennedy (who co-produced three chapters of Tim Winton’s The Turning) and features locations including the Swan Valley, Kalamunda and Serpentine.
