Australian Revelations brings you the 2015 cult comedy Pawno.
One of the surprise Australian indie hits of recent year has been this lovely ensemble piece.
Set in the always energetic, diverse and multicultural suburb of Footscray,Pawnorevolves around one day in the lives of twelve characters. The film is set in an ageing pawnbrokers shop and at the core of the story beats a romance, yet love is rarely simple. Within a day, lives intersect and motives are examined. This multi-layered story celebrates the rawness of humanity and challenges audiences to see the world from a different view.
With a cast that includes some of Australia’s most recognised faces alongside the newer, we’re treated to outstanding performances from John Brumpton, Kerry Armstrong, Maeve Dermody, Damian Hill, Mark Coles Smith and Malcolm Kennnard.
Australian Revelations is a celebration of Australian cinema. Hosted by Breaking Banter at the fabulous The Backlot Perth with drinks from DeVine Cellars and Otherside Brewing, cheese and international delights from Perth Gourmet Trader.
