BOFA Opening Night Film and Party
All is Lost
VILLAGE CINEMA. 6.30pm
Direct from Cannes Film Festival –
“A stunning work of art.”
“Redford delivers a tour de force performance.”
Deep into a solo voyage in the Indian Ocean, an unnamed man wakes to find his 39-foot yacht taking on water after a collision with a shipping container left floating on the high seas. With his navigation equipment and radio disabled, the man sails unknowingly into the path of a violent storm. An elemental drama of human survival.
“All is Lost has such rhythm and intensity that it makes utterly compelling viewing. As viewers, we are entirely caught up in the sailor’s struggle”.
And join us after for
Opening Night “Cannes Glam” Party
MOVIE ONLY $17;
MOVIE AND OPENING NIGHT
PARTY $40 (all inclusive)
Sadly, Robert Redford can’t make it, but there will still be lots of glitz and glamour, visiting film makers and fine Tasmanian food and wine at the TasTAFE Drysdale School of Hospitality in Paterson Street, just a block away from the cinema. Dress up and party into the night to celebrate the start of another three days of the world’s best movies at BOFA, Tasmania’s only major annual film festival.
