26 Nov – Sun 7 Apr @ UWA Somerville & ECU Joondalup Pines ·
Presented by Perth Festival ·
What better way to spend a beautiful evening than enjoying a picnic with
friends before sitting back as the silver screen lights up the Festival’s
two beautiful outdoor cinemas at UWA Somerville and ECU Joondalup Pines.
One crowd-pleaser will be Sink or Swim, the quirky Cannes Film Festival hit
comedy about a group of middle-aged Frenchmen who form a synchronized swimming
team to ease their stress-filled lives. Other highlights include include South
Korean thriller Burning, which is an adaptation of Haruki Murakami’s short story
‘Barn Burning’; Woman at War, a comedic Icelandic film about a middle-aged
eco-warrior; Cold War, Polish Oscar-winner Pawel Palikowski’s stylish mid-century
romantic saga; and Japanese drama Shoplifters, the winner of this year’s
Palme d’Or at the Cannes film festival.
