JUDY AND PUNCH : A BRACINGLY ORIGINAL DIRECTORIAL DEBUT BY MIRRAH FOULKES

In the anarchic town of Seaside, nowhere near the sea, puppeteers Judy and Punch are trying to resurrect their marionette show. The show is a hit due to Judy’s superior puppeteering, but Punch’s driving ambition and penchant for whisky lead to an inevitable tragedy that Judy must avenge.

In a visceral and dynamic live-action reinterpretation of the famous 17th century puppet show, writer director MIRRAH FOULKES turns the traditional story of Punch and Judy on its head and brings to life a fierce, darkly comic and epic female-driven revenge story, starring MIA WASIKOWSKA and DAMON HERRIMAN.

Sydney Arts Guide has one double pass to give away to a special Filmmakers Spotlight event screening taking place this coming Thursday November 14 at 6.15pm at the Dendy Newtown cinemas.

After the screening you will get to see the director Mirrah Foulkes in conversation with David Michod, Mia Wasikowska and Damon Herriman.

To win the double pass, put in an email in thirty words or less what you believe are the attributes of a great film director. Make sure that you please put Judy and Punch Promotion in the subject heading of your email.
