Back in August 2019 I caught up with GO! director Owen Trevor at CinefestOZ in Busselton. Most of GO! was shot in Busselton so there was no better place to have a chat.
Originally, I filmed the interview but because I’m a complete amateur my big, fat, bald head was cut out of frame so I took the audio from that interview and used it for the 42nd episode of the Cinema Australia Podcast. 😀.
When Jack (William Lodder) and his single mother (Frances O’Connor) move to a small town in Western Australia, he soon gets involved in the competitive world of go-kart racing. Jack’s got natural talent but must learn to control his recklessness.
To do that, he’ll need the help of aspiring engineer, Mandy (Anastasia Bampos), wise-cracking best mate Colin (Darius Amarfio-Jefferson) and mysterious mentor, Patrick (Richard Roxburgh). Together, the team will endeavour to overcome all odds and defeat ruthless racer Dean (Cooper Van Grootel) to win the National Go Kart Championship.
GO! is in cinemas from January 16.
