CinefestOZ Film Prize Finalist, GIRL ASLEEP, directed by Rosemary Myers, is set to make its Western Australian premiere at CinefestOZ at the Orana Cinemas in Busselton on Friday 26 August at 8.15pm.
Girl Asleep is a journey into the absurdities of the teenage mind. Navigating puberty in 1970s suburbia, Greta doesn’t want to grow up. Her mum is embarrassing and her sister disinterested. Geeky Elliott is her only ally. Greta’s surprise 15th birthday party is on track to be the worst night of her life – until she’s flung into an odd fairy-tale universe with a warrior princess. Filled with wild musical flourishes and moments of colourful theatrics, Girl Asleep resists the adult world as much as its lead character.
The final Film Prize screening for the festival of Girl Asleep, takes the audience on a journey into the absurd, scary and beautiful heart of the teenage mind. Filmmakers and cast will walk the red carpet before the audience escapes reality in this coming-of-age tale.
