Recommended Viewing: Tim Winton’s THE TURNING: A Unique Cinema Event

Today I attended a matinee viewing of ‘The Turning’ at the Dendy, Opera Quays in Sydney and was greatly impressed with the amazing variety and scope of the seventeen short films based on Tim Winton’s collection of short stories The Turning. The brainchild of the writer and director Robert Connolly, there are showcased in this three hour film, some of Australia’s most talented actors, directors and cameramen.

You receive a beautiful 40 page booklet of the films upon payment. The screening of The Turning will be for only two weeks, perhaps more, and the film will be screened on ABC TV later in the year.

I like the quirky dark side of these stories and how the conflicts that emerge are left largely unresolved- like in real life. My favourite film would have to be the title piece 'The Turning'.

Get in quick to one of the few designated cinemas before it’s too late.
