Australian Revelations: Shame with Producer Q&A
BY Revelation Film Festival | 06-May-2018
The Revelation Film Festival and Breaking Banter proudly present a celebration of film - past, present and future - through a program of monthly screenings; Australian Revelations. Film: Shame Q&A with Producer Paul Barron after the screening.
In May we proudly celebrate the 30th anniversary of Shame. When this film hit the WA production slate, did it cause a stir!
Deborra Lee-Furness plays Asta Cadell, a leather clad, no-nonsense lawyer, free-wheeling her way around the country on a very powerful motorcycle. As happens, her bike breaks down in isolated rural WA where she has to spend some time in town. As a guest of the town mechanic Tim Curtis (played by Aussie film stalwart Tony Barry), Asta rapidly discovers the town is hiding a dark secret that will change the town forever.
Recently restored by the Australian National Film and Sound Archive this rock-solid drama is packed with excellent performances and a real sense of urgency as the frustration of everyone reaches explosive levels. Most certainly ahead of its time, Shame was filmed in and around Toodyay and has actually become more relevant and important with time.
Accompanied by WA short film You Me and Karen.
