Luna Palace Cinemas is delighted to announce a special Q&A screening with Aaron Pedersen (Mystery Road, Goldstone, Spear, The Fear of Darkness), one of Australia's leading actors and star of Damien Power's terrifying new film, at Luna Leederville on Friday August 11 following the 6.45pm session. The evening will be hosted by Tania Chambers, producer , executive producer and former Chief Executive of funding agencies Screen NSW and ScreenWest.
A smash hit with audiences upon its debut at Sundance Film Festival, Tasmanian-born writer/director Damien Power's first full-length feature transcends genre clichés to create a truly hair-raisiing outback-set thriller.
When young urbanites Ian and Sam decide to go camping, they arrive at their isolated destination to discover another tent already set up, but no sign of its owners. With the other campers at large, Ian and Sam’s discovery of a child wandering alone sets off a terrifying chain of events that will push them to their limits – and beyond.
This ‘intense’, ‘unnerving’, ‘supremely suspenseful’, ‘shocking and fresh’ thriller stars Aaron Pedersen, cast against type, with Ian Meadows (WAAPA graduate), Harriet Dyer and Aaron Glenane.
