David Michôd to do Rover Q&A at Cinema Nova

Acclaimed Australian director David Michôd will be discussing his new film The Rover, following a preview screening on the 8th of June at 7:40 pm.

The Rover, which will be premiering at the Cannes Film Festival on May 18th, is a slow-burn thriller, in the style of a Western. While it’s set in an unspecified near future, it is at its heart, a film about today. A film about the rapacious capacity for under-regulated Western economies to destroy themselves, it’s about the inevitable shifting of global power, says Michôd. He and his friend Joel Edgerton (Animal Kingdom), worked together on the story, and he later wrote the script after deciding that “he really liked it”.

The film was shot in a remote part of South Australia, among the Flinders Ranges. The choice was logical for the filmmakers: “I wanted there to be hills yet some parts that felt busted and urban and other parts that were completely desolate while it was still important that some parts were strangely beautiful,” Michôd said.

The Rover opens nationally on June 12th. For more information about the film, check out the website. Tickets for the Q&A and preview screening are available at the Cinema Nova website.
