Directed by Jennifer Kent..
Classification: CTC, 181 mins.
Country: AUSTRALIA.


The Tasmanian Premiere of THE NIGHTINGALE, ahead of its national release later this month, will be followed by a Q&A with filmmaker Jennifer Kent (Director), Baykali Ganambarr (Actor) and Jim Everett (Producer).

Written and Directed by Jennifer Kent, THE NIGHTINGALE is a meditation on the consequences of violence and the price of seeking vengeance. Set during the colonisation of Australia in 1825, the film follows Clare (Aisling Franciosi) as she chases a British officer (Sam Claflin) through the rugged Tasmanian wilderness, bent on revenge for a terrible act of violence he committed against her family. On the way she enlists the services of an Aboriginal tracker named Billy (Baykali Ganambarr), who is also marked by trauma from his own violence-filled past.
