On Australia's most controversial national holiday, the lives of three Australians from diverse cultural backgrounds will collide, illuminating contemporary issues of racial tension and national identity that simmer beneath the surface of modern Australia.
As the sun goes down and the stars come out, the Cape Mentelle gardens transform into an outdoor cinema beside the iconic vines. With cult favourites and box-office hits projected on the big screen and the spectacular natural environment as the backdrop, it's the ideal recipe for the perfect summer evening. Arrive early to experience the stunning Margaret River sunset and truly seize the night with gourmet food matched with your favourite bottle of Cape Mentelle wine.

AUSTRALIA DAY (MA15+)
On a sweltering Australia Day in Brisbane, the worlds of three young people collide. Indigenous teen, April; Chinese woman, Lan and Sami, an Iranian-Australian teen are desperate and on the run. As each of their stories unfold, a farmer (Bryan Brown), Indigenous policewoman (Shari Sebbens) and homicide detective (Matthew Le Nevez) are also swept into a whirlpool of violence, racism and resentment.
