The Melbourne International Film Festival for this year is set to commence on the 30th July and on the 7th July the full program will be launched. But before that we’ve been given a sneak peek of one of the titles that will premiere, Australian film Force Of Destiny.
David Wenham stars as Robert, a renowned sculptor diagnosed with liver cancer. While reeling from the news he meets Maya (Shahana Goswami) an Indian marine biologist who comes from a different world, a different reality. Robert’s passion for Maya intensifies as he confronts the agony and ecstasy of finding the love that has evaded him his entire life, just as his body is about to be taken from him. However new hope comes when he’s placed on the transplant waiting list.
Directed by Paul Cox, Force of Destiny is a poignant and extraordinary love story inspired by Cox’s own experiences of living with cancer and falling in love. It will screen on Thursday 6th August at the Iconic Forum Theatre.
