Australian Film Series To Screen In Santiago, Chile
There are fans of antipodean cinema everywhere it seems, and the latest outpost flying the flag for Australian cinema is the M100 Cultural Center in Santiago, Chile. From January 15 to 31, the M100 is hosting a program of 11 films called Foco en Australia, with every film screening for free.
The series opened with The Proposition, the brutal Western written by Nick Cave and directed by John Hillcoat and closes with Red Dog, the feelgood family film which grossed over $20 million in its home country. Also among the highlights are Animal Kingdom, The Hunter and Kenny.
