:: Spotlight :: Red Carpet Premiere for 'Roses Are Dead'

By: Carmine Pascuzzi

Young Australian film director Min Tran recently premiered his 50-minute horror film ‘Roses are Dead’. Funded entirely from wages earned as a projectionist, the film's production quality goes far beyond what one might expect. This has been a project which has taken Min approximately two years in the making. The film has some worthy qualities - good-looking victims, gruesome special effects, and tense action.

Min‘s talent could see him follow the steps of the filmmakers of previous Australian films 'Saw’ and ‘'Wolf Creek’. He said that he had been interested in film since the beginning of high school and would be submitting ‘Roses Are Dead’ to film festivals locally and overseas. This is the first film under the umbrella of his production company Mintyland Pictures.

‘Roses Are Dead’ stars Natasha Juravic, Jane Lundmark, Sarcha Braund, and Matt Rolston.

A Red Carpet Premiere occurred at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) in Melbourne.

Here are pictures from the event.
