South Australian Premiere
A Japanese tourist enjoying a relaxed car journey through the beauty and tranquility of the Australian desert collides with a violent moment in time. The bloodthirsty battle is over as quickly as it begins, vanishing eternally into the desert landscape.

Dylan River is a young Aboriginal filmmaker from Alice Springs in Central Australia.
He grew up in a creative family filled with artists and filmmakers and, from an early age, thought filmmaking was boring and not for him. He couldn’t have been more wrong.
In 2013, his debut documentary Buckskin won the Foxtel Documentary Prize at the Sydney Film Festival, followed by its broadcast on the ABC.
In 2015, Dylan’s first short film Nulla Nulla was selected as part of the Berlin and Toronto film festivals and won the 2015 AACTA Award for Best Short Film.
Dylan has worked on numerous solo projects and tv series. His work as a cinematographer fills most of his time, and he is motivated to tell stories close to home, combining life and work as one.
