August Screening – A Bag Of Marbles
Aug 22 2017

*** One Night Only ***

A BAG OF MARBLES (Un sac de billes) is a 2017 French drama directed by French Canadian Christian Duguay. This moving story of human courage and the desire for freedom was adapted from the highly acclaimed book by Joseph Joffo written about his family and their experiences during World War II.

The film boasts stunning cinematography by Christophe Graillot with fine performances from its two main actors aged just 17 and 12-years-old. It is a story about the bond forged between two young brothers fleeing from Nazi persecution.

The Odyssey Theatrical Poster

Special Screening of The Odyssey – (Presented by the Sunshine Coast Surf Film Festival)
Aug 15 2017

Foreign film fans may also be interested in the Sunshine Coast Surf Film Festival’s screening for August.

Jacques Cousteau, the French ocean explorer who enchanted generations in France and Britain 60 years ago, will find a younger audience with the release of a new film of his life.

The Odyssey (L’Odyssée), is a €20m spectacular that took five months to film, including shooting in the frozen wastes of Antarctica and with sharks in the Bahamas.

As well as recreating some of Cousteau’s finest adventures, the film also explores the man behind the icon, who led a secret double life with a mistress and second family, and the irascible nature that led him to fall out with his children.
