We’re giving readers the chance to win one of two Hotel Coolgardie prizes.
Perth winners will receive a double pass to see a special Q&A screening of Hotel Coolgardie at Luna Leederville on Tuesday 30 May, while national winners will receive an in-season double pass to the incredible new Australian documentary.
Following a packed out screening at last years’ Sydney Film Festival, Hotel Coolgardie garnered national headlines for its depiction of the disturbing experience of two Finnish backpackers who found themselves the latest batch of “fresh meat” sent to work as barmaids at the only pub in a remote Australian mining town.
Hotel Coolgardie is a sometimes amusing, sometimes appalling, surprisingly moving portrait of small town insularity, fragile masculinity and the plight of the outsider forced to adapt or face the consequences.
Produced with the financial support of Screenwest and directed, shot and edited by West Australian filmmaker Pete Gleeson, Hotel Coolgardie is Gleeson’s first feature-length documentary and has been officially selected for Hot Docs, American Documentary Film Festival, Nordic International Film Festival, New Zealand International Film Festival, Cinéfest Oz and Canberra International Film Festival.
