LE PRELUDE – 10,000 MILES FROM PARIS (2019) – “Thousands have lived without love, not one without a drink”. Experience a clever “Truth or Dare” with “France versus Australia” and with the biggest alcohol hip flask on Planet Earth.
Directed by Kathleen O’Dwyer, beautifully scripted comedy and unexpected denouement, in a ten minute journey that tells the story behind each character in a carefully crafted paradigm, but actually gives nothing away until the end credit sequence. A little bit of crowdfunding and the producers offset, the full ninety minute version will be produced as quick as a flash, and will be on Australian cinema screens, Australian made with Australian landscapes, Australian cast and crew.
