We are incredibly excited to announce LOVELAND with special guest Ivan Sen as the openign night film for Deckchair Cinema 2022. Set on the neon lit streetscapes of Macau and Hong Kong. A lonely traveller meets a call girl and experiences a lost emotion. Soon their health deteriorates and they set out to set out to uncover the truth of their repressed lives. LOVELAND stars Hugo Weaving, Ryan Kwanten and Jillian Nguyen.
Ivan Sen's work has featured on the Deckchair Cinema screen for two decades, most notably the gritty outback detective features MYSTERY ROAD and GOLDSTONE. His work has been selected at Cannes, Berlin, Toronto and many more film festivals around the world. In Loveland he is credited as Director, Writer, Producer, Editor and Cinematographer... an incredible array of skills! Hang back after the film for a Q&A hosted by ABC Darwin's Adam Steer.
It's that time of year again - the dragonflies are beginning to emerge, the knock-em-downs are beginning to blow. At the Deckchair Cinema were getting ready for the season - lights and speakers are about to go up, a new stage is being built and there's a steady stream of posters and films arriving at the cinema. Opening the gates on that first day is one of my favourite expreriences, familiar faces flow into the cinema, old friends say hello. Grab a cushion and get ready for the show to begin...
Opening night tickets are on sale here - the first 8 fundraisers are also already on sale to give them a head start before the full Deckchair Cinema program goes on sale on Friday 18th of March.
