SFF @ Casula Powerhouse

Sydney Film Festival’s popular series of screenings at Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre returns for a fourth year, bigger, better and bolder than ever!

Every month from February-November you can experience the best in festival-quality features and documentaries, specially selected for Casula Powerhouse by the Sydney Film Festival programming team.

From greatest hits of previous festivals, to films that they really would’ve liked to have shown (but couldn’t for one reason or another…it’s complicated sometimes!), you will experience cinema way beyond what you’ll ever find in a multiplex.

And from 10-18 June the offering becomes even more exciting, when the 2017 Sydney Film Festival moves in to show five films at Casula as part of the hundreds of screenings we host all across the city.  

Better still, at any or all of these 14 screenings, you can add on a fantastic meal created especially for each event by the brand-new Head Chef at Bellbird, Casula Powerhouse’s in-house bistro.

Forced out of their apartment due to dangerous works on a neighbouring building, Emad (Shahab Hosseini) and Rana (Taraneh Alidoosti) move into a new flat in the centre of Tehran. An incident there, linked to the previous tenant, dramatically changes the young couple's life together. At the same time, the couple are performing in production of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman as Willy and Linda Loman: a strange mirror of their own situation.

Winner of Best Actor and Best Screenplay awards at Cannes, and the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, this new powerful drama by Asghar Farhadi (A Separation, Sydney Film Prize 2011; The Past) is a brilliant examination of masculinity in contemporary relationships.

"[The Salesman] is a well-crafted, valuable drama." – THE GUARDIAN

"Another finely cut gem of neorealist suspense." – VARIETY
