MARY MAGDALENE will be released across Australia on 22 March. Ahead of the release, Transmission Films are delighted to announce that the film’s director Garth Davis will take part in a series of Q&A events in early March in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne.

MARY MAGDALENE is Garth Davis’ second feature film after the incredible success of LION last year, and it stars Rooney Mara as Mary Magdalene and Joaquin Phoenix as Jesus, with Chiwetel Ejiofor as Peter and Tahar Rahim as Judas. The film is produced by See-Saw Films, the company behind Lion, The King’s Speech and Top of the Lake.

Set in the Holy Land in the first century, MARY MAGDALENE is the story of a young woman who leaves her small fishing village and family to join a new movement. Inspired by its charismatic leader, Jesus of Nazareth, and his teachings, Mary sets out with the disciples on the journey to Jerusalem, where she finds herself at the centre of the founding story of Christianity. MARY MAGDALENE brings a unique and fascinating character to the fore and places her at heart of the greatest origin story of all.

Film Fatales, the largest global organization of established women feature film and television directors, is heading into SXSW with seven feature films in the lineup. Film Fatales will also host a panel discussion “Female Gaze: Alternative Fact or Actual Movement” with panelists Amy Adrion (Half the Picture), Nijla Mu’min (Jinn), Suzi Yoonessi (Unvlovable) moderated by Leena Pendharkar.

The organization will also continue its 5th anniversary celebration by hosting a Female Filmmaker Meetup during the festival. Says founder Leah Meyerhoff, “What began as a dinner party in New York five years ago has expanded into a community of hundreds of women directors who meet up monthly in a dozen cities around the world. Through a grassroots approach, we are shifting the gender ratio behind the camera and changing the landscape of storytelling.”


Amid growing calls for gender parity, equal pay and increased visibility for women in Hollywood, Film Fatales has become a vital network for women filmmakers seeking the support and resources needed to further their careers. “I’m so proud to be among this group of women who are defying the odds, telling their stories and supporting one another, day in and day out, with practical help and meaningful encouragement along the way,” says Amy Adrion, whose film Half The Picture will be screening in the Festival Favorites section of SXSW. “In making a film you have to have sustained commitment to something that only exists in your mind and heart, which can be difficult, especially given the naysaying of an industry that’s still unsure what to make of women’s voices. Film Fatales has been a place of renewal along that journey and I’m excited to be at SXSW with so many other women filmmakers doing their thing.”

Adds Suzi Yoonessi, whose feature film Unlovable will have its world premiere in the Narrative Spotlight section, “Productions are obstacle courses, and Film Fatales has provided me with a community of directors who are the YellowPages of resources and support.”
