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.

Going Down

SYNOPSIS: A searing vision of a Sydney rarely seen by tourists but one that is just below the surface. A cult hit, this film has been described by Phillip Adams as one of the ten best films made in the country. It is the story of four young women on the town the night before one of the group goes to New York. Their adolescence, their group and their future is breaking up in an exuberant gesture of defiance.

Reviews:

"...while Going Down has all the wit and inventiveness that tempt a critic to call it the best Australian film in years, its basic strength is a riotous realism that should appeal to youth audiences in droves."
Meaghan Morris Financial Review

"Going Down is a film that has been little screened or critically discussed locally since its release. Yet not only is it, unarguably, a key work in the history of independent feature filmmaking in this country for the way it combines and mutually enriches both naturalistic and expressionistic approaches to narrative cinema, it is also in its own terms one of the finest and most memorable films made in Australia."  Adrian Martin, Cinema Papers 

"....an overwhelming impression of energy..a remarkable creation of scene and atmosphere that marks the debut of Haydn Keenan as an exciting new director." Neil Jillett, the Age

Subject area independent australian feature/ young people.
