Compelling cinema
20 July 2020 | by auntymalikaSee all my reviews

Slam is a thought provoking, slow burn film and it builds up to an explosive ending. It tells the story of a young muslim Australian who gets trapped in a cycle of prejudice and Islamophobia of the politicians and media. Rare for an Australian film that talks about minorities. Saw it at the 2019 Sydney Film Festival. A must watch, now available on Foxtel-Binge. Compelling cinema!
