The full length official trailer for Tim Winton’s The Turning has now been released.
From 26 September 2013, the film will release as a unique cinematic event starring Cate Blanchett, Rose Byrne, Hugo Weaving, Miranda Otto, Brenna Harding, Richard Roxburgh, Callan Mulvey, Dan Wyllie and numerous others. Seventeen talented Australian directors from diverse artistic disciplines each create a chapter of the hauntingly beautiful novel by multi award-winning author Tim Winton. 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.
All sessions currently on sale as part of the limited season will screen with an interval, audiences at these screenings will receive a special 40 page programme.
I’m very much looking forward to what appears to be a rather unique cinema-going experience. Also it has an interval!! For those of us who struggle to make it through longer films, this is excellent news.
