The Daughter 2015

Directed by Simon Stone

Starring Geoffrey Rush, Sam Neill, Odessa Young, Ewen Leslie, Paul Schneider, Miranda Otto

Synopsis:

Christian (Paul Schneider) arrives home after a long absence for his father Henry’s (Geoffrey Rush) wedding.  Theirs is a difficult relationship, but he’s made to feel more at home by bumping into his one-time best friend, Oliver (Ewen Leslie).  It’s not long before Christian’s personal problems start to surface and he delivers a hammer blow to both families that has repercussions for everybody.

After directing a segment in last year’s Australian portmanteau The Turning, Simon Stone has graduated to his first full length feature with The Daughter.  Yet he appears to be playing it safe by taking the inspiration for the script, which he also wrote, from Henrik Ibsen’s The Wild Duck, a play that he’s already directed on the stage.

Stephen Page talks black storytelling, eyes narrative feature with Justin Monjo

21 February 2016 5:39 PM, PST | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Bangarra founder and frontman Stephen Page has just returned from Melbourne, where he screened Spear, his first feature, at Acmi.

The dance film, which premiered at Toronto last September, sprang from an early Bangarra piece of the same name.

"When I created Spear in 2000, we had Archie Roach singing his poetic, streetwise songs onstage. Hunter [Page-Lochard, the director's son and star of both Spear and the upcoming Cleverman] was a six year-old onstage. It was one of Wayne Blair's first acting jobs".

So many years later, Spear is now Page's first feature, though the director is no stranger to filmmaking..

"I did a dance film called Colours in 1990 that I choreographed with Victoria Taylor for the Sydney Dance Company. It was all based on colours, so each colour had a short dance story and then it was all patched together. I think Screen Australia was involved. I only got reminded about it four months ago, I forgot I actually did it".
