WWM's Warwick Thornton wins Best Direction and Best Cinematography at AACTA Awards

BBQwj6w.img.jpegWWM director Warwick Thornton was awarded Best Cinematography and Best Direction at last night's AACTA Awards for his stunningly beautiful, yet brutal feature film 'Sweet Country'.

The film is an Australian western, set in 1929 in the Northern Territory's MacDonnell Ranges. It centres on an Aboriginal station hand, who goes on the run with his wife after killing a white settler in self-defence.
sweet_country_still.jpgTalking about the film at the Awards last night, Thornton said, "[It's] a healing process for us Indigenous people because we've actually got a voice now. It hurts but it actually empowers us because the more we know about our past theSweetCountry-2 (1).jpg better decisions we make about our future."

The film picked up six awards in total at the 2018 AACTA Awards, including Best Film, Best Lead Actor, Best Original Screenplay and Best Editing. The film was produced by Bunya Films.

Warwick is available for commercial work through World Wide Mind.
