By: Carmine Pascuzzi

SNOWTOWN, the debut feature film of director Justin Kurzel and producers Anna McLeish and Sarah Shaw for Warp Films Australia, launched its full-length trailer and key art work recently. The eagerly anticipated film releases in cinemas nationally on May 19 and stars an exciting new Australian cast including Lucas Pittaway, Daniel Henshall and Louise Harris.

SNOWTOWN is a powerful psychological drama set in Adelaide’s northern suburbs and based on the real crimes of Australia’s worst serial killer, John Bunting. It explores the relationship between 16-year-old Jamie Vlassakis, who found his father figure and mentor in John Bunting. It is the examination of a community and questions how and why events such as Snowtown occur.

The film was the hot topic of conversation at the 2011 BigPond Adelaide Film Festival where it won the Audience Award for Best Feature.
