Aussie Film Night + Drinks
6 September, 2016
Student Exchange Society
You may not have realised yet, but there is more to Australian culture than just drinking goon! Come and enjoy a classic Australian movie in the beanbag room of the Rowden White Library (level 2 of Union House), starting at 5pm on Tuesday night. Lollies, snacks and beanbags provided!
YOU DECIDE which movie we watch! Here are your 3 options - watch the trailers and vote for one on the poll posted below:
The Castle (1997) -
A cult comedy with a uniquely Australian sense of humour about a battling working-class family. The source of many everyday Australian expressions
Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (1993) -
Another cult classic about two drag queens and a transsexual who travel across the desert to perform cabaret - starring Hugo Weaving (from the Matrix, and Lord of the Rings)
Bran Nue Dae (2009) -
An uplifting coming of age story / musical about an Indigenous teenager on a road trip in the late 1960s - starring Geoffrey Rush (from Pirates of the Carribean)
If you can't make it to the film screening, we'll be heading over to the Shaw Davey Slum around 7pm for some dinner and drinks. Everyone is welcome to join!
