A landmark Australian film event, from adaptations of Tim Winton's acclaimed short stories
Discover an extraordinary filmmaking collaboration in TIM WINTON'S THE TURNING. Eighteen talented Australian directors from diverse artistic disciplines each create a chapter of the hauntingly beautiful novel by multi award-winning author Tim Winton. The linking and overlapping stories explore the extraordinary turning points in ordinary people’s lives in a stunning portrait of a small coastal community. As characters face second thoughts and regret, relationships irretrievably alter, resolves are made or broken, and lives change direction forever.
With contributions from such unique voices as Robert Connolly (BALIBO), Warwick Thornton (SAMSON & DELILAH), Tony Ayres (HOME SONG STORIES), Justin Kurzel (SNOWTOWN) and Mia Wasikowska, among many more, and starring Cate Blanchett, Rose Byrne, Hugo Weaving, Miranda Otto and so many other talented individuals, this watershed film reinterprets and re-imagines Winton's work for the screen.
