Following two sold out screenings at Monster Fest in Melbourne last November, where it took out the ‘Golden Monster’ for Best Film, we are pleased to present in association with Umbrella Films ONE NIGHT ONLY screenings of LORDS OF CHAOS on Friday February 22nd in cinemas across Australia & New Zealand.

Set in the world of Norwegian black metal, and combining an 80s/90s period setting, the blackest of black humour and brutally visceral scenes of violence, LORDS OF CHOAS is ‘metal’ in every sense of the word – and an experience you’re sure to never forget. The only thing crazier than the film itself is the fact it’s based on the very real – and very violent – actions of an infamous Norwegian black metal crew. Drawing from his experience as the drummer in a black metal band, director Jonas Åkerlund brings a level of authenticity to the screen rarely seen along with the unmistakable style that made his music video work so memorable.

Uncork’d Entertainment is proud to announce the North American theatrical and digital release of the acclaimed Australian crime-drama West of Sunshine.

A captivating social-realist story from debut feature filmmaker Jason Raftopoulos, the celebrated film – hot from an outstanding response, complete with standing ovation, at the Venice Film Festival – tells of a father who has less than a day to pay back a gambling debt, while looking after his young son.

Featuring powerful performances from Damian Hill (“The Leftovers”), Ty Perham, Arthur Angel (Red Dog), Kat Stewart (“Underbelly”), Eliza D’Souza (Predestination) and Kaarin Fairfax (“Picnic at Hanging Rock”), Welcome to Sunshine is a “nigh-perfect slice of inner city Australian cinema” (Filmink) that befittingly finds its home alongside Aussie crime drama classics like Chopper and Two Hands.

Synopsis : Separated from his family and caught in a cycle of gambling and debt, Jim has less than a day to repay a violent loan shark. His day is turned upside down when he must look after his young son. Jim’s relationship with his son is tested as his plans to pay back the loan fail. When his last desperate effort to repay the debt puts his son’s life at risk, he must make a choice between his past and a second chance at life.

Opening theatrically January 25, and releasing on VOD January 22, West of Sunshine is being distributed by Uncork’d Entertainment.

Created and Directed by Shaun Anthony Robinson and Produced by Lucinda Bruce (Lady of the Light Productions), “That’s Not a Knife; it’s an Aussie Actors Journey to Hollywood” is for anyone with a dream, the underdog story of an actor, who fights back against the odds by overcoming his own fears and creating his own path to Hollywood, documenting his journey along the way. He meets other actors who share their own fears and insecurities with him, helping help him to understand his own journey better and inspire others to do the same. Matt Nable sits down with the team at ‘That’s Not A Knife’ to talk about the highs and lows of his career, his transition from football to acting, mental health, his own demons and the challenges he faced to get where he is today. During the interview, Nable discusses how he got some of his biggest roles, “The Director said to me, do you know why you got the job… You got the job because Vin had seen the tape and said ‘that’s a man with pain in his face, that’s what I want’.”

The former Rugby League Footballer turned actor, lives in Sydney and is currently in development on his latest project, “A Sunday in the Village”. His journey, and several others are highlighted in the documentary that has traveled to Los Angeles and all around Australia to interview some of our most well known talent, to some of the lesser known creatives making their own way in the industry.

“For every person over there who’s made it really big, there’s lot of people there that are struggling, that are chasing this, their ambition, their dream, and not to say that it won’t happen cos I’m living proof that when someone says he looks that way we want them, so they’re right to stay at it and they’re very, very talented people.” – Matt Nable. “Real. Raw. Relentless.” To date, the documentary has interviewed Aaron Jeffries (X-Men: Origins, McLeod’s Daughters, Chopper);. Shane Connor (Neighbours, Fire); Christian Isaiah (Shameless (US)); Matt Burch and Froylan Tercero (Operation Repo); Kym Jackson (Ten days in the Valley); Craig Bennett (Studio 10 Hollywood Reporter and Gossip Guru); and Orpheus pledger (Home and Away) with many more to come.
