"Dream is a shadow of something real." Chris Lee (David Gulpilil)Internationally acclaimed filmmaker Peter Weir (Oscar ® nominated director of Picnic at Hanging Rock, Gallipoli and Witness) explores a startling world on the brink of apocalypse in The Last Wave, a time and place where Mother Nature and human nature are destined to collide in catastrophic disaster. When lawyer David Burton (Richard Chamberlain, The Thorn Birds) is assigned a case to defend a group of indigenous Australian men, he is unprepared for the nightmares and dreamscapes ahead. Accused of murdering one of their own, the men stand trial amidst suspicious circumstances and, as Burton becomes plagued by unsettling visions, he is drawn to the mysterious Chris Lee (AFI Award winner David Gulpilil, Storm Boy, The Tracker) for answers to his torment. As the erratic climate turns dangerous, Burton senses a greater power at play, where tribal customs and the ancient ideas of Dreamtime may be more than just an ominous warning. Featuring atmospheric cinematography by Oscar ® winner Russell Boyd (Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World), The Last Wave is a haunting journey into the depths of the unknown, where dreams and nightmares conspire as one.

From one of Australia's most treasured novels comes an exquisitely beautiful Australian classic based on the true story of Jeannie Gunn - a woman who battled the odds as a station master's wife in outback Australia. For the love of her new husband (Arthur Dignam, The Devil's Playground), Jeannie (AFI Award Winner Angela Punch-McGregor, The Chant Of Jimmie Blacksmith) abandons a high society city life to trek into the vast and wild heart of Australia - where wives are seldom seen, and even less accepted. Enduring isolation, hardships and battling against the sexist and racial prejudice of the Australian outback environment, Jeannie strives to win the friendship and respect of those about her. Shot on location in Australia's breathtaking Northern Territory, directed by Igor Auzins (Coolangatta Gold), featuring an epic film score by Award-Winning composer Peter Best (The Picture Show Man), and also starring John Jarratt (The Last Outlaw), We Of The Never Never tells the inspiring true story of a woman overcoming all for love.

South Africa, 1901. The British war against the Boers has deteriorated into bitter guerilla warfare. A unit of the Bushveldt Carbineers, made up mainly of Australians, is ordered by the British High Command to fight the Boer on its terms and take no prisoners, an order which will prove fatal to a man they call "The Breaker" - Lieutenant Harry Morant.
