The G’day Solomon Islands Film Festival ends tomorrow with the last film ‘Bran Nue Dae’.
Mr Andrew Byrne Australian High Commissioner said the High Commission had been pleased to provide this unique cinema experience to hundreds of Honiara residents and encouraged everyone to come and enjoy the final showing for this year’s Film Festival.
“Bran Nue Dae is a fun, feel-good movie for everyone – not just lovers of song and dance. It is an excellent movie to conclude the G’day Solomon Islands Film Festival,” Mr Byrne said.
“With a dream cast, including Australian Idol Jessica Mauboy, singer Missy Higgins and acclaimed actors Ernie Dingo, Magda Szubanski and Geoffrey Rush, Bran Nue Dae is entertaining from start to finish”.
Set on Australia’s sparkling west coast, Bran Nue Dae is a coming of age musical adventure that celebrates Australia’s indigenous culture.
The movie is about an Aboriginal boy’s adventures in 1960s Australia as he escapes Catholic boarding school to make his way back to his hometown Broome, and his sweetheart.
The G’day Solomon Islands Film Festival has been showcasing classic Australian films every Friday in June. The Australian High Commission has screened ‘Crocodile Dundee’, ‘Babe’ and ‘Strictly Ballroom’; providing hundreds of Honiara residents the opportunity to enjoy an outdoor cinema experience.
The screening of ‘Bran Nue Dae’ will commence at 6:30pm this Friday at the Honiara Art Gallery Grounds.
