Romulus, My Father
Filmfest 2007

The story centers on a battered little migrant family and is set in the Victorian bush sometime after the second world war. It is a heartfelt story, a vast reservoir of pain, and at times, humour. It is the tale of a boy, Rai, trying to balance a universe described by his deeply moral father, against the experience of heartbreaking absence and neglect from a depressive mother. The singular thing about this story, given its tragic dimension, its almost biblical reach, is how strangely uplifting it is. Richard Roxburgh, director
