UPCOMING EVENTS SYDNEY
Possible Worlds presents "THE GOOD LIE"
Wednesday 25 November
6pm complimentary drinks, 6:30pm film, Dendy Opera Quays
Dir: Philippe Falardeau, USA-Kenya-Canada, 2014, 110 min
Cast: Reese Witherspoon, Arnold Oceng, Kuoth Wiel
Orphaned by the Civil war in Sudan, a group of displaced boys must lead young survivors to safety. Years later, they are offered the chance to resettle in Kansas City, where they encounter a helpful if slightly unprepared employment counsellor (Oscar-winner Reese Witherspoon). Far from being simplistically rescued by a well-meaning white saviour, these “lost boys”, played with brio by gifted Sudanese actors, become the heroes of their own lives. Philippe Falardeau (Monsieur Lazhar) sensitively captures humour in the clash of cultures, alongside heartbreak and hope in the challenges of life in the West.
“Falardeau works in surprising levels of funny, winning, stirring detail.” – The Guardian
“It largely avoids mawkish sentimentality and casts a glow that is increasingly absent nowadays from films depicting international strife.” – The New York Times
PAST SYDNEY EVENTS 2015
Possible Worlds presents "SAM KLEMKE'S TIME MACHINE"
Golden Age Cinema & Bar, Surry Hills, November 4th & 5th 2015
+ Q&A with Sam Klemke and Matthew Bate
In 1977, Sam Klemke started obsessively documenting his entire life on film, starting decades before the modern obsession with selfies and status updates. The same year that Sam began his project, NASA launched the Voyager craft into deep space carrying the Golden Record, a portrait of humanity that would try to explain to extra terrestrials who we are. Sam Klemke’s Time Machine follows two unique self-portraits as they travel in parallel – one hurtling through the infinity of space and the other stuck in the suburbs of Earth – in a freewheeling look at time, memory, mortality and what it means to be human.
Possible Worlds presents "THE SANDWICH NAZI"
Friday 16 October, 9pm, Palace Verona, Paddington
A special screening as part of Antenna Documentary Film Festival of this hilariously entertaining portrait of a wildly inappropriate, filthy-mouthed Vancouver deli owner. "Larger than life — particularly where it counts, as he can’t mention often enough — the subject of Canadian The Sandwich Nazi is one of those classic obnoxious-in-a-lovable-way eccentrics who make natural camera subjects." - Variety
