The first teaser trailer for Tim Winton’s The Turning has been released, and it is intriguing.

Tim Winton’s The Turning, a film adaptation of Tim Winton’s best-selling novel ‘The Turning’, consists of 17 chapters that each features a different director and cast. Under the guidance of curator Robert Connolly (Balibo), first time filmmakers Mia Wasikowska and David Wenham make their directorial début amongst acclaimed directors such as Warwick Thornton and Justin Kurzel.

There is a lot of talent among those working on this film and I’m always interested to see how films with multiple directors are woven together. Producer Robert Connolly comments, “We came upon this idea of extending a personal invitation to seventeen great creative minds to interpret one chapter each and asking them if any of the stories particularly spoke to them, affected or resonated with them.”

The film will première at the upcoming Melbourne International Film Festival.
