SELECTED: OFFICIAL COMPETITION, SYDNEY FILM FESTIVAL 2019

War photographer Daniel Fisher (Hugo Weaving, Mystery Road, The Matrix trilogy) returns home to Sydney, and despite his partner's protests, prepares for yet another hazardous overseas assignment. At the same time, he is organising an upcoming exhibition of his work from the world's war zones. South Sudanese refugee, Sebastian  (Andrew Luri), living happily in Australia  with his wife and young child, learns that the exhibition will include images of a massacre in his village 15 years earlier. He finds Daniel and begs him to exclude those photographs. An unlikely friendship develops between the two men, but it is severely tested when Daniel makes a shocking discovery. With powerful performances from Weaving and Luri portraying men from very different backgrounds who bond over their shared trauma, director Ben Lawrence’s beautifully acted debut feature is an intelligent, morally complex and deeply moving film.
