VICTORIAN PREMIERE

Queer Australian First Nations filmmaking is still rare in 2024, so this Victorian premiere of the directorial debut of Butchulla man, David Cook, shot in Brisbane and featuring a predominantly LGBTQIA+ and Aboriginal cast, is cause for celebration.

Chris Wundurra (Parker Little) is pushed by his intimidating father, Sammy – played by writer-director David Cook – to train for the national boxing title he didn’t himself attain, a failure connected to tragic events that robbed Chris of his mother and Sammy his wife. Sammy’s obsession with his son following this path encounters resistance, however, when Chris starts to question his sexuality and finds himself more oriented towards pursuing treading the boards at a local theatre than stepping into the ring.
