Following a string of sold-out premieres at the Sydney Festival, ACMI and the Perth International Arts Festival, Stephen Page’s Spear is set for a limited series of screenings across Australia.
Spear follows a young man named Djali (Hunter Page-Lochard) from the Australian outback to the streets of Sydney on his quest to understand what it means to be a man with ancient traditions in a modern world.

Canberra’s NFSA Arc Cinema and Melbourne’s Cinema Nova will are holding their Q&A screenings on the 12nd (featuring Stephen Page) and 13th (featuring Stephen Page, Aaron Pederson and John Harvey).
