FEATURING 2 SHORT-LENGTH FEATURE FILMS: GREY BULL & NO GOOD TURN

The Schools Program features workshops in film-making by industry leaders from Nollywood -the world’s third largest film producing country (after Bollywood, India and just above Hollywood, USA).

GREY BULL is a film about Martin, a South Sudanese Refugee living in Australia negotiating his ancient culture in a foreign land. His story forces us to question what we ask people to leave at the door when they come to this country. How does Martin maintain a sense of self in a new place, when everything that he has built his masculinity around is no longer relevant?

NO GOOD TURN follows the events after a Boko Haram terrorist attack, when a suspected terrorist is brought into the hospital. The doctor handling the emergency ward must try to keep the chief of police in check as he is out for jungle justice. He must keep everyone’s value in check especially his own.
