Partho Sen-Gupta Directs Australian-French Feature SLAM

 

SLAM, Partho Sen-GUPTA’s third film, will be a co-production between Michael Wrenn in Australia (Three Summers, The Rocket) for Invisible Republic and Marc Irmer in France for Dolce Vita Films. The film will be released in Australia by Bonsaï Films and Doc & Film International will handle international sales.

 

Slam tells the story of Ricky, a young Arab Australian whose peaceful suburban life is turned on its head when his sister, Ameena, disappears without trace. In a climate of distrust and xenophobia, she is soon suspected of having joined the ranks of ISIS in Syria. In a ‘post-facts’ world, Ricky no longer knows who to believe, his sense of what’s right or the 24 hours media cycle of spin. 

 

Supported by Screen Australia, Screenwest and CNC’s Cinémas du Monde.

Shooting due in October 2017

Sunrise by Partho Sen Gupta released in France on March 2nd

SYNOPSIS

 

Inspector Joshi is a grieving father searching for his daughter Aruna, kidnapped years ago when she was six. In his despair, life converges with a recurring dream in which Joshi pursues a shadowy figure who leads him to ‘Paradise’, a night-club where teenage girls dance to a leering crowd. He is convinced he will find Aruna there and vows to bring her back to Leela, his broken wife.
