Sleeping DogsSleeping Dogs (1977)
Dir. Roger Donaldson
Feat. Sam Neill, Warren Oates
Roger Donaldson's nihilistic action-thriller in which Sam Neill finds himself alone between two opposing extremist groups. A trail-blazer of the NZ film industry, energized by the blood, sweat and tears that went into making it happen.

Dir. Justin Kurzel
Feat. George MacKay, Essie Davis, Nicholas Hoult
Justin Kurzel (SNOWTOWN) directs this adventurous retelling of the Australian story of bushranger and outlaw Ned Kelly, based on Peter Carey's 2001 novel.
