Add to basket THE DREAMING



Life is about to get very interesting for estranged teenager Danny (Rodney Harvey, My Own Private Idaho) who visits his father on an isolated farm in Australia. Nat Molloy (Bruno Lawrence, The Quiet Earth) lives happily with his girlfriend and her daughter but ongoing struggles with the farm necessitate supplemental income. So Nat earns money on the side smuggling marijuana for a drug connection. But when Danny joins his father on one fateful flight, their two-seater plane crashes in the middle of nowhere, forcing father and son to struggle against the elements in order to survive. Also starring Miranda Otto (Lord of the Rings) and Tony Barry (Mystery Road), Initiation is a gripping journey into the rugged wilderness of South Australia.


When doctor Cathy Thornton (Logie Award winner Penny Cook, A Country Practice)  treats an ailing indigenous girl in a hospital emergency room nothing prepares her for the horrors that lie ahead. In the wake of the girl’s death the Cathy's life begins to unravel dramatically – haunted by bad dreams and waking visions driven by severe and catastrophic events in aboriginal history. Tormented by ghosts of the spiritual landscape, Cathy unwittingly finds herself involved in a 200-year-old murder mystery. Also starring Logie Award winner Garry Sweet (House Husbands) and Arthur Dignam (The Devil's Playground)
