PERTH FESTIVAL Lotterywest Film season part one

It’s once again time to enjoy some of the best of film under the stars, as the Perth Festival Lotterywest Film season begins. From November 26 the UWA Somerville and ECU Joondaulp Pines will show a selection of films from around the world, promising a varied program. From synchronised swimming to Van Gogh, the first half of this season’s selection assures viewers a wide breadth of topics and genres.

The season starts with An Unexpected Love, an Argentinian romantic comedy drama, about an empty nest couple experiencing a change in their relationship and a chance to explore a new life.

Across the next few weeks we will see Willem Dafoe as Vincent Van Gogh in At Eternity’s Gate, Mads Mikkelsen versus the icy tundra in Arctic, a documentary about guide dogs in Pick of the Litter, follow two mismatched lovers in a Europe torn asunder in Cold War, and catch the latest from directors Hirokazu Kore-eda (Shoplifters) and Ashgar Farhadi (Everybody Knows starring Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem).
