The truth will out. 

This keenly anticipated debut feature from the South Australian creative team of director Matt Vesely, writer Lucy Campbell and producer Bettina Hamilton is a striking science fiction thriller. Through the clever containment of a single location and only one on-screen character, Monolith surveils disgraced journalist (rising star Lily Sullivan) as she turns to podcasting to salvage her career, before uncovering a strange artefact that she believes is evidence of an alien conspiracy. The teasing mystery is a product of the ground-breaking Film Lab: New Voices initiative, and uses its creative restraint to compelling advantage.

Special guests will be in attendance alongside the filmmakers.
Ticket price includes access to the post-screening gala event. Guests will be treated to an exclusive AFF Gala celebration alongside an A-list of screen industry in unique Adelaide style.
Details to follow.
