SELECTED: SYDNEY FILM FESTIVAL 2019
Ameena, a young hijab wearing Australian of Palestinian origin, disappears one night after featuring in a slam poetry gathering in suburban Sydney. Across the world, an Australian air force fighter is shot down over Syria and the pilot is captured by IS.
The two unconnected events wreak hell in the quiet suburban life of Ricky (Tariq, Ameena’s brother) who runs a neighbourhood hipster café with his wife Sally. In a climate of distrust and xenophobia, Ricky is forced to denounce his sister as an extremist.
With his third feature, writer/director Partho Sen-Gupta delivers a tense thriller that explores generational conflict and packs a powerful punch.
