Welcome to my back yard!

The Shire. No, not the land of hobbits you know on middle-earth but the surf-loving, fair-dinkum locale of sporting stars, swimsuit models and middle to upper class white folks.  An area that is as iconic to Sydneysider’s as Bondi is to the world.

And just like that partially-truthful throwaway statement, director Abe Forsythe walks a fine line between truth and absurd extremism in his latest film Down Under.

Flipping racially driven tragedy into comedy, Forsythe delivers an acerbic tale set during the aftermath of the 2005 Cronulla riots with two carloads of hotheads throwing common sense out of their pussy-wagon and hotted-up Commie windows.

In the homologous suburb of Lakemba, Hassim (Lincoln Younes) eschews the middle-eastern stereotype; he’s studious, »

Lincoln Younes and Rahel Romahn in Down Under.

Lincoln Younes has appeared in City Homicide, Love Child, Home and Away and Hiding. If checks in with him on the publicity tour for his first feature lead role, in Abe Forsythe's Down Under.

How did you get your start?

I did a global rock eisteddfod in Japan when I was in Year 9. I was an incredibly shy kid. Performance was probably the last thing I wanted to do but I always had a real interest in people and in what made them tick. I loved the empathy side of people and trying to understand what.s behind it all. I wanted to play soccer professionally for a lot of my formative years, and then I chose acting, and I moved from Bendigo to Melbourne and my first audition was a show called Tangle, which I got. I played Ben Mendelsohn.s son. »

Set to have its debut at the upcoming Sydney Film Festival, the official trailer has been released for the controversial Australian dark comedy "Down Under". Actor turned filmmaker Abe Forsythe aims to provoke reaction with the film which is set during the aftermath of the Cronulla riots ten years ago in Sydney. The riots themselves involved a group of xenophobic angry white men tried to 'take back' the beach suburb from young Middle Eastern men and became one of the darkest days in modern Aussie history.

Damon Herriman ("Justified") and Lincoln Younes ("Home and Away") lead the cast of the film which follows two groups on either side of the fight. Forsythe tells Junkee: "All my favourite comedies are tragedies and what happened to our national identity on the day of the Cronulla riots was a tragedy.

.

Abe Forsythe's black comedy Down Under is set to hit Australian cinemas on August 4.

Distributed by StudioCanal, the film is a black comedy set during the aftermath of the Cronulla riots.

As Forsythe's second feature, it is the story of two carloads of hotheads from both sides of the fight destined to collide..

Sincere, though misguided, intent gives way to farcical ineptitude as this hilarious yet poignant story of ignorance, fear and kebab-cravings unfolds, and what was meant to be a retaliation mission turns into something neither side could have imagined.

During the shoot, Forsythe told If the narrative mined comedy through the heavy drama.
