Slam will enjoy a limited cinema release across Australia from October 17.
Directed by Partho Sen-Gupta, Slam stars Adam Bakri (Omar) as Ricky and acclaimed Australian actor Rachael Blake.
Shot in the western suburbs of Sydney, Slam follows Ricky Naser – a young Australian whose peaceful suburban life turns to hell when his sister Ameena disappears without a trace. In a climate of distrust and xenophobia, Ricky is forced to denounce her as an extremist.
Slam will screen at Cinema Nova in Melbourne, Luna Leederville in Perth and Dendy Canberra. The film will also screen at the Palestinian Film Festival in Sydney in late October, with more locations to be announced.
