Indulge in one of Australia’s finest mumblecore films with the Chocolate Oyster Q&A tour

Aaron Glenna and Anna Lawrence in Chocolate Oyster.

Following a critically acclaimed screening at last year’s Sydney Film Festival, director Steve Jaggi’s brilliant observational mumblecore Chocolate Oyster is hitting the road with a series of Q&A screenings across the country.

Chocolate Oyster follows twenty-somethings Ellie and Taylor, who live in Bondi apartments they can’t really afford and pursue their dreams in a city that seems intent on thwarting them. Taylor chases a dance career by day and works as a waitress at night while supporting her new boyfriend Henry, an aspiring playwright. Tired of being with a dependent and juvenile boyfriend, Ellie ends her relationship and begins to see Craig, a chef who dreams of creating a signature dish that will make his name.

With the story workshopped between actors and director, and a great deal of improvisation, the monochrome Chocolate Oyster has a breezy quality that reflects both the beauty and difficulty of life.

Chocolate Oyster stars Anna Lawrence (Underbelly), Rosie Lourde (RipTide), Ryan Harrison (Love Child), Aaron Glenna (Killing Ground), Stephanie King, Tyler Atkins, Laura Bunting, Stephen Multari, Samuel Wilson, Kallista Kaval and Digby Webster.
