World Premiere Gala

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.

Ticket price includes access to the post-screening Gala event. The Monolith Black Carpet Gala and World Premiere screening at Palace Nova Eastend Cinemas will be followed by a party at The Cloisters, The University of Adelaide (entry via Gate 10, Victoria Drive). Enjoy a live music set by techno maestro Ben Featherstone, sip on a complimentary drink and graze on canapés while whilst mingling with the filmmakers and other special guests.
