Multi-award-winning independent film The Decadent and Depraved is set to launch a public theatrical season in partnership with The Backlot Cinemas in Perth. The debut production from director Jordon Prince-Wright has already taken the International Film Festival market by storm, winning Best Independent Feature Film at the Los Angeles Film Awards, plus multiple other awards at festivals around the world.
The success enjoyed by The Decadent and Depraved has led to a huge swell of social media support and public demand to see the film. This opportunity will now be afforded to fans as the film launches a limited 10-day season at The Backlot Perth from October 12, before a block of screenings in Melbourne, Sydney and regional WA.
Made on a shoe-string budget of less than $100,000, The Decadent and the Depraved was completed with no significant industry funding. The production is the result of a collaboration of local creatives who came together to bring Prince-Wright’s vision to cinematic reality. The result is a visually stunning film telling a gritty, old western tale of a game of cat and mouse set in colonial times in outback Western Australia.
Prince-Wright is excited to bring his film to Australian audiences. “It has been a long journey from pre-production to now. We set out to transform Western Australia’s gritty western-style past into a feature film. Watching the original western flicks as kids, our aim was to preserve the traditional filmmaking approach as much as possible,” he explained.
“Whilst The Decadent and Depraved pays homage to both the traditional Western film and the true history of our state in the 1880s, it also pushes the boundaries of both the genre and ‘historical accuracy’ to create something unique and riveting.”
