Australian Revelations August says
Revelation Perth International Film Festival in association with Cinema Australia proudly present a celebration of Australian film - past present and future - through its program of monthly screenings.

August's film is the WA premiere of Downriver

A young ex-con encounters secrets from the past and danger in the present when he returns to the rural Australian community to discover the truth behind a crime he supposedly committed when he was a child.

Downriver boasts a bold sense of place: under the surface of its seemingly sleepy milieu lies a hidden network of abuse and exploitation, blackmail and desire. Scicluna maintains the suspense with spellbinding layers of flashbacks and dialogue, creating a tense atmosphere that's amplified by the riveting performances from Ireland, Tom Green, and Kerry Fox in the role of James' tormented guardian. Downriver takes us to some dark places, but it does so in pursuit of those brutal truths that aren't so easily washed away. - Jane Schoettle - Toronto Film Festival
