West of Sunshine

Q&A screening

A father has less than a day to pay back a debt to a violent loan shark, while looking after his young son.

Join us at for a Q&A screening of West of Sunshine, with director Jason Raftopoulos and actor Damian Hill.

A gritty social-realist tale from Jason Raftopoulos, the director of Pawno, follows a father’s desperate attempts to turn around his life and not disappoint his son.

Jim (Damian Hill) is a working-class courier who has racked up a $15,000 debt to a shady, violent loan shark due to an out of control gambling addiction. The day of reckoning has arrived, and Jim is due to pay in full. His plan is to place a sure bet at the racecourse – and he has no back-up plan if this one fails.

Manoeuvring through the day while also taking care of his young son, who is in Jim’s care due to school holidays. West of Sunshine charts a family relationship on the brink of shifting from rosy childhood to brutal reality.
