FLick Affairs

Abraham Forsythe's very controversial “Down Under“ - a pitch black comedy about pride, prejudice, stupidity and the battle for white supremacy - just took home the awards for Best Picture and Best Director at this year's Comedy Features section at Fantastic Fest.

It's “native“ Aussies against immigrants in sunny Cronulla - a place the locals love to refer to as “The Shire“. The movie kicks in a day after the notorious Cronulla riots, as it follows two carloads of hotheads from both sides of the fight destined to collide.

Check the opening sequence - which reminds you about the outrage that went down at Australia's Cronulla some ten years ago via an impressive monatge of news snippets - and trailer below.
