Description

From visionary filmmaker Robert Eggers comes the hypnotic and hallucinatory tale of two Victorian-era lighthouse keepers (Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson) stuck together on a jagged windswept island. The grizzled, demonic older man provides his junior little training or guidance with his flinty banter and their increasingly drunken meals. As these sea dogs’ grog runs low and phantoms begin to beset the island, this deliciously gothic thriller becomes evermore distinctive, compelling and wild.  You have never seen a film quite like  The Lighthouse – a sozzled future  cult classic. 

‘Funny, sinister, haunting, historically fascinating and mythical … one of the best  films of the year.’  THE NEW YORK TIMES

Description

Daggy as hell but forever upbeat, Bernard and Annie Chamodot are parents to Emile, a gawky 15-year-old who can’t take much more of Dad’s ultra-lame antics, Mum dying his hair or their majorly embarrassing spendthrift ways. When a wealthy classmate he’s keen on invites him to a concert in Venice, Ma and Pa insist on tagging along. Boasting another scene-stealing performance from Benoît Poelvoorde (Sink or Swim), Venice Calling is a comedy for anyone who’s been or had an over-keen parent or who remembers getting too old for crap family holidays.

Description

In the Paris suburb of Montfermeil, where Victor Hugo set the original Les Misérables, conscience-laden police officer Stéphane is dismayed at his team’s methods. In the neighbourhood, tensions between rival community leaders may be coming to a head, and when a kid accidentally films some heavy-handed policing Stéphane tries desperately to mediate, to avert a brewing riot. As well as being marvellously exciting, director Ladj Ly’s debut feature is sensitive and sympathetic. Crackling with revolutionary fervour, this is one of the year’s most essential French films.

French with English subtitles 

‘A gritty and fiery urban thriller underscored by scathing social commentary on the current state of the Paris suburbs.’   HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

Infatuation, obsession, vanity, fixation. We've all felt it; we can't help it. A highly visual dance work layering wearable art, makeup and feminine power. 1000 layer cake explores multiple visual and conceptual elements to bring an overwhelming aesthetic for the senses. It emphasizes the absurdity of this inescapable part of the human condition.

Presented by Minni Karamfiles, a Perth based 2018 Bachelor of Arts (dance) graduate of the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts. Starting ballet at the age of three with the Studio of Classical and Contemporary Dance, she formed a love for dance and choreography. Relocating from Manjimup to Perth in 2014 she joined Steps Youth Dance Company and WAAPA (certificate 3) and in the next year joined Co3 Youth and the Perth School of Ballet to precede her tertiary studies. Alongside dance, Minni works with makeup and fashion design after attaining a state and national title in both 2013 and 2014 at the Apex Australian Teenage Fashion Awards. In FRINGE WORLD 2019, Minni co-choreographed 'Via Lactaea' in the collective Moving Cosmos, which was given a weekly award for dance and physical theatre.
