International PREMIERE

Flammable Children (Swinging Safari)

Part of the World Perspectives Strand


A wild and energetically funny dose of Australian nostalgia, this sprawling comedy is wonderfully marshalled by writer-director Stephan Elliott (The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert). This is a glossy and often wonderfully rude film following three families. The kitsch side of the ’70s is gloriously celebrated, children run amok, adults engage in a little sexual swinging and there is even a rotting beached whale. Featuring a top-notch cast that includes Guy Pearce, Kylie Minogue, Radha Mitchell and Julian McMahon.
