Q&A Event for Healing

Q&A Event for Healing


Craig Monahan, director of the upcoming Australian drama, HEALING, will be in town for a special premiere event on Thursday 8 May (6.30pm) at Luna Cinemas Leederville. The Talking Pictures Q&A screening will be hosted by Annie Murtagh-Monks, Skills and Engagement Coordinator at FTI. 

Inspired by true events, HEALING is a powerful, moving story of redemption, the discovery of hope and the healing of the spirit – in the most unlikely place, for the most unique men, through the most unusual catalyst. 

After 18 years in prison, Viktor Khadem (Don Hany – East West 101, Offspring, Serangoon Road, Broken Shore) is a man who has almost given up on life. Near the end of his sentence he is sent to Won Wron, a low-security prison farm 200 km outside Melbourne in regional Victoria, where Senior Case Worker Matt Perry (Hugo Weaving) has established a unique program to rehabilitate broken men through giving them the responsibility for the rehabilitation of injured raptors – beautiful, fearsome proud eagles, falcons and owls.

Against all odds, Matt takes on Viktor as his number one test case, introducing him to Yasmine, the majestic Wedge-tailed Eagle with a two metre wingspan. If these two can tame each other, anything is possible. 

Academy Award winning cinematographer Andrew Lesnie is behind the camera and David Hirschfelder has written a beautiful score, befitting a dual Oscar nominee. 

Date: Thursday 8 May
Time: 6.30pm
Location: Luna Cinemas Leederville
Tickets: $17.50 (general), $13.00 (concession)
