Smoke Between Trees
Queensland Premiere | Australia | Drama
Powerful storytelling and tremendous performances highlight this thought-provoking Australian indie drama.
Before, Mathew Higgins was a middle-class white fella leading a suburban existence.
Now, he is a man shaped by grief; angry, alone and without family. When his estranged Aboriginal grandson is propelled back into his life, his greatest challenge will come in the reconciling of his deepest pain with the child who stands before him, his kin.
Join writer/director/producer Michael Joy for a Q&A after the film.
