Playing at the forthcoming MIFF is 100 Bloody Acres, the feature film debut from filmmaking brothers Colin and Cameron Cairnes, who won first place with the film script in the horror section of the prestigious Slamdance Screenwriting Competition. We’ve now got an official synopsis and awesome one-sheet debut.
“When three young suburbanites head off to a music festival in the country, a car breakdown is all they need. Thankfully, help is at hand in the form of local organic fertiliser trader Reg, who stops and invites the partygoers to wait for help back at the farm he runs with his brother, Lindsay. But is Reg a good Samaritan or a good businessman? With a big order pending and the brothers seeking to improve their product, will the three youths find themselves pushing up daisies?”
Damon Herriman (Laid, Love My Way), Angus Sampson (Summer Coda) and John Jarratt (Wolf Creek), and produced by Julie Ryan (Red Dog) and Kate Croser (Danger 5) all star.
100 Bloody Acres is written and directed by the Cairnes Brothers who are best known for their award-winning short film Celestial Avenue which won the 2010 If Award for Best Short Film, the Grand Prize at Rhode Island and Best Comedy at Arizona Film Festival in 2009.
