SELECTED: OFFICIAL COMPETITION, SYDNEY FILM FESTIVAL 2019

In a visceral and dynamic live-action reinterpretation of the famous 16th century puppet show, writer-director Mirrah Foulkes turns the traditional story of Punch & Judy on its head and brings to life a fierce, blackly comic and epic female-driven revenge story, starring Mia Wasikowska.

In a peculiar and unforgiving town; gripped by a frenzy of witch hunts and hangings, the townspeople revel in the drama and brutality of the trials and executions, while Judy and Punch endeavour to use their show to escape, with their new baby, to loftier means. Unfortunately, Punch succumbs to the seduction of the local tavern. Despairing at her husband’s weakness, Judy forces the hungover Punch to focus on his responsibilities and leaves him to mind their baby for a morning, the repercussions of which are disastrous for all.

Mirrah Foulkes' first directorial feature is a determinedly offbeat, often delightful mix of satire, whimsy and social critique.
