A brand new trailer has dropped for Kriv Stenders’ Australia Day ahead of its world premiere at the Sydney Film Festival.
The trailer shows an edgier side to Stenders, who’s best known for his family friendly Red Dog film’s, and marks the third collaboration between Stenders and Bryan Brown who starred in Kill Me Three Times and Red Dog: True Blue.
Sean Keenan’s career is going from strength-to-strength and he looks to be at the top of his game here – making us even more excited to see him star as John Grant in the upcoming Wake In Fright telemovie.
On Australia Day three young people from diverse cultural backgrounds are running scared.
April is a 14-year-old Indigenous teen fleeing from a car crash.
17-year-old Iranian boy Sami is running from a crime he didn’t commit.
Lan, from China, is escaping sexual slavery.
Elsewhere there’s Sonya (Shari Sebbens), an Indigenous cop wracked by guilt, and Terry (Bryan Brown), a cattle farmer who’s just lost everything.
Australia Day is written by Stephen M. Irwin and is produced by Nathan Mayfield, Tracey Robertson, Leigh McGrath and Edward Herbert.
