         PANDEMONIUM @ VIVID SYDNEY 2017

The Vivid festival will screen our legendary gothic fairytale PANDEMONIUM this coming Thursday night, June 15 @ 8pm in the Cross. It's a simple story of a young girl who washes up on Bondi beach in search of her parents and the answer to a question.  Why did they try to sacrifice her at Ayers Rock all those years ago?  Saved by dingos and brought up as one of their own she's back and she's pissed off.
Starring David Argue and Amanda Dole with a special guest appearance by VIVID Sydney Director Ignatius Jones who will do a Q&A afterwards this is one of the most notorious movies ever made in Australia.  Can you cope with the shocking truth?

Ghosts Of The Civil Dead

SYNOPSIS:  This is a startling and powerful film set entirely within the confines of a modern maximum security prison.  It goes beyond the traditional prison film themes of good and evil to draw a frightening allegorical portrait of the nature and organisation of our society.  On release this film caused heated debate worldwide.  This is the first feature by Australian Director John Hillcoat who has worked closely with Nick Cave on a number of projects including The Proposition and The Road.  Cave composed the music for Ghosts with Mick Harvey and makes an unforgettable screen debut as the crazed Maynard.  The DVD extras include world exclusive interviews with Cave and an extraordinary insight into the creative process he uses to develop his writing and characters.
These DVD copies are the last original copies.  There will be no more made.  The rest are all pirates.  The DVD, authored by Haydn Keenan from Smart St. Films, brings together the most comprehensive collection of DVD extras ever assembled for an Australian film.  Once these copies are sold that's it.  The Producer has indicated there will be no more made.
