The Sun At Midnight

Q&A screening with director Kirsten Carthew

Sometimes you have to be lost to find yourself.

Join us at Dendy Newtown for a special one-off screening of The Sun At Midnight, followed by a Q&A with Canadian director Kirsten Carthew.

In the wake of her mother’s death, Lia, a 16 year-old urban princess, is sent to spend the summer with her Gwich’in grandmother in Ft. McPherson, a small Subarctic community in Canada’s Northwest Territories.

Desperate to return to city life she steals a boat and sets out into the vast Northern wilderness hoping to reach the nearest town. Totally lost, she is discovered by Alfred, a Gwich’in hunter, who reluctantly takes her under his wing as he navigates the massive landscape in search of caribou.

When Alfred is severely wounded in a bear attack Lia pushes on and fights to save both of their lives.



Saturday 14 July 2018 from 6.30pm to 8.30pm


Adult: $22.00
