Closing Night: Escape and Evasion

Closing Night: Escape and Evasion

War/Drama | Australia | World Premiere

Seth is the lone survivor of a mysterious military operation in Burma. After he returns home and tries to get back into a regular existence he is confronted by a Journalist determined to dig up the truth about what exactly those soldiers were doing in that tropical jungle.

Writer/director Storm Ashwood’s gripping evocation of the toils of war is anchored by a startling, and emotional, performance from Josh McConville. Proudly filmed on the Gold Coast, this locally made production is an exciting war movie and a compelling examination into the troubling effects of PTSD.

Join the film’s cast and crew for a Q&A after the film.
