Locusts

Thriller | Australia | World Premiere

When tech entrepreneur Ryan reluctantly returns to his remote hometown for his father’s funeral, old family tensions are reignited. Ryan quickly becomes entangled with a gang of desperate small-town thugs from his father’s past, becoming the target of a deadly extortion scam.

Channelling the spirit of iconic neo-noir thrillers like Oliver Stone’s U-Turn, Angus Watts’ electrifying screenplay situates the action in a uniquely Australian milieu and Heath Davis’ punchy direction makes the most of a murderer’s row of the country’s best actors including the final screen performance from the extraordinarily talented Damian Hill.

Join the filmmakers for a Q&A session following the screening.
