Boundry Street

Synopsis:
Follows the story of three African-American soldiers in Brisbane. Off duty, they head to the Dr Carver Club, a jazz club set up especially for African-American servicemen. The promise of new, exotic music and dancing attracts many Australians, including 'respectable' white and Indigenous women. Prejudices are dispelled and genuine friendships blossom, but then the simmering racism erupts violently.

Damned, The

Synopsis:
Narelle and Louise are teenagers from regional Wa. They take drugs, move in together, pledge sisterhood and stop going to school. Louise meets Eliza and brings her home like a lost pup. They band together, destroy stuff and have a whale of a time. Cracks appear in the crack haze, however, and the sisters gang up on the outsider. Their crime is violent and vicious and confounding. Based on a real story, The Damned is chilling, unflinching and very stark drama indeed.

Return, The

Reg Cribb
Late on a stifling hot night, the close confines of a suburban Perth train become a claustrophobic and bitter psychological battleground. Steve and Trev are two social misfits who have never had 'a fair go'. When Lisa, a beautiful young woman, gets on the train the two thugs vie for her attention, through various boisterous antics, which while comical are still somehow disturbing. The journey rides the uneasy line between comedy and terror as the two thugs turn on the handful of commuters. The pressure cooker situation threatens to explode as they near their Fremantle destination, but by the journey's end the line between aggressor and victim has become blurred. Just who is terrorizing whom? a web of intrigue and power which will keep audiences guessing all the way.
