May’s Australian Revelations Screening is Pawno

Let’s not mince words here – Pawno is one of the genuinely great modern Australian films. An instant classic, with superb writing and acting from one of the best talents Australia was ever lucky to witness – Damian Hill.

Not enough people saw it on its release, and sure as shit not enough people know about it now. Fix that problem this month at Perth’s Revelation Film Festival‘s monthly Australian Revelations screening of Paul Ireland’s brilliant film.

Damian Hill and co-star, John Brumpton, were nominated for AACTA awards, with Hill gaining a double nom for acting and writing. If that isn’t enough to get you to book your ticket right now, then go read my review right here. Damian Hill is – and always will be – a fucking champion, and is missed every single day. Pawno is a reminder of a talent gone too soon.

Pick up your tickets right here for the screening which takes place at The Backlot Perth on May 27th.
