In the mystical Blue Mountains, a paramedic faces his most confronting case. With 7 seconds to decide, will he follow rules to prolong a patient’s suffering – or risk his career by ending their pain? The film stars actors from some of Australia’s most iconic films and TV shows – Anne-Louise Lambert (‘Picnic at Hanging Rock’), Chris Gabardi (‘The Secret Life of Us’), Beth Champion (‘Brides of Christ’), Tiriel Mora (‘The Castle’), Keiran King (‘Dr Blake Mysteries’), Don Bridges (‘Romper Stomper’), Joanne Samuel (‘Mad Max’) and introducing Andie Isalie. ‘The Last Babushka Doll’ is written by award-winning writer Georgina Luck and directed by experienced filmmaker Angelo Salamanca.
We’re delighted to announce that after premiering at the academy-qualifying St Kilda Film Festival in May 2018, the film has also been officially selected to screen at:
- The San Jose International Short Film Festival (Sun 14 October, 12pm)
- The Byron Bay International Film Festival (Sun 14 October, 4.15pm)
- YoFiFest – The Yonkers Film Festival in New York (date TBC)
‘The Last Babushka Doll’ is based on Georgina’s short story of the same name, written with assistance from Griffith Review, Text Publishing and Varuna the Writers House and published by Margaret River Press.
