Out of Blue

Synopsis

Mike Hoolihan (Patricia Clarkson) is a homicide detective- it’s her whole life. Brought up in a series of foster homes, knowing nothing about her origins, her life didn’t really begin until she joined the academy. Being police is who she is - and it makes her feel safe. Hoolihan is called in to investigate the shooting of leading astrophysicist and black hole expert Jennifer Rockwell (Mamie Gummer). As she ventures further down the path of truth, Hoolihan cannot shake a haunting feeling that there is more than meets the eye in this case, leaving her view of the universe and herself precariously unstable.

Waru

For Australian sessions, head to: au.demand.film/waru/

A sisterhood of 8 Maori female directors bravely share their insights into the complexity of child abuse, in a sequence of eight short films that seamlessly become one.

At the centre of their stories is Waru, a boy killed at the hands of a caregiver. His tangi, set on a small rural marae, is the centrepiece of the film, but there is an underlying disturbance of heavy themes touching on culture, custom and shame.
