WINNER · GRAND JURY PRIZE · JEONJU INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

A wry take on contemporary solipsism, this celebrated Aussie slacker satire proved a big hit at Rotterdam and New York festivals.

Sydney twenty-somethings Ray (Fergus Wilson), a self-absorbed videographer and Alice (Emma Diaz), a similarly apathetic acquaintance, lack very little in life – and maybe that’s their biggest problem. Told through vignettes, the two drift in and out of one other orbits, beset by alternately bizarre and poignant encounters.

Skewering Australian culture with a confidently unrestrained bite, James Vaughan’s pithy, often hilarious, take on contemporary millennialism, is by turns both a poetic cinema mediation and a laugh-out-loud absurdist comedy of manners.

“Had me cackling at its dry and gleeful absurdity.” - The New York Times

Director James Vaughan and actor Fergus Wilson are guests of the festival.
