"Snowtown" is the talk of the town and this fantastic opportunity to view the film with Adam taking questions is not to be missed. If you have not yet seen this film or if you have seen it and want to find out about what went into making it, this is possibly your only chance. Adam will have some fascinating facts to pass on about pre-production and shooting this urban thriller based on the true story on John Bunting and the infamous "bodies in the barrels" murders in South Australia in the 1990's. A word of caution to the viewer from the ACS: "Snowtown" does contain some very graphic violence and disturbing scenes.

About "Snowtown" by Victoria Goodyear

The debut feature for director Justin Kurzel and lensed by Adam Arkapaw, Snowtown received accolades at the 2011 Cannes Critics Week, recognised with a special distinction by the Jury President Lee Chang-dong.

Reviews have described the film as alternatively "borders on torture porn, there will be those who wish they could 'unsee' it" to "an incredible piece of cinema and a devastating, poetic work of storytelling, Snowtown is unmissable." You be the judge.

Sixteen-year-old Jamie lives with his mother, Elizabeth, and two younger brothers, Alex and Nicholas, in a housing trust home in Adelaide's northern suburbs. Jamie longs for an escape from the violence and hopelessness that surrounds him and his salvation arrives in the form of John, a charismatic man who unexpectedly comes to his aid. When the truth is finally revealed to Jamie his hopes of happiness are threatened by both his loyalty for, and fear of, his father-figure John Bunting, Australia's most notorious serial killer.
