When the distributor that had agreed to release Fallout pulled out, director Lawrence Johnston and producer Peter Kaufmann decided to self-distribute the documentary which celebrates the life and work of Australian novelist Nevil Shute.
That strategy entails a lot of time and effort to book cinemas but so far it.s paying off. Fallout premiered at Melbourne.s Cinema Nova on October 31 and ran for three weeks and it screened in Adelaide. The film opens on December 5 at the Dendy Newtown in Sydney and at the Arc cinemas in Canberra.
Johnston and Kaufmann are arranging four screenings at Melbourne.s Acmi in December/January and a one-off showing at the George Cinema in St Kilda on December 14. They.re discussing with exhibitors engagements in other states. International sales are being handled by Paris-based Melimedia.
The film focuses on Shute.s most famous work, »
