The dazzling new Australian drama film Strange Colours, will finally see a cinematic release, with an exclusive Sydney run at the intimate Golden Age Cinemas.
The film, which premiered at the Venice International Film Festival and was met with sold-out acclaim at Sydney Film Festival, has been described as “a visually dazzling display of understated, enjoyable performances and heady vistas” by Filmink, follows Milena (Kate Cheel) as she travels to the remote opal-mining community of Lightning Ridge to visit her estranged father Max (Daniel P. Jones). She is caught somewhere between his antagonistic mates and the unforgiving landscape, and soon the young woman is drawn into Max’s beguiling world as they try to mend their fractured bond. While she grapples with her bewildering surroundings, and becomes entwined with young miner Frank, Milena is forced to come to terms with her own loneliness in a town of lost souls.
Strange Colours is exclusive to Golden Age in Sydney, and is the narrative debut from Russian-born director Alena Lodkina, who The Guardian has called “a bold new Australian voice”. It has also screened at the Melbourne International Film Festival and the Goteborg Film Festival. Check the trailer here:
