"Unfinished Sky" (2007) M

Starring William McInnes,  Monic Hendrickx, David Field, Roy Billing
When Tahmeena stumbles onto John's isolated farm, he has no choice but to take her in.
An illegal refugee, she's been badly beaten and speaks no English. While John's not inclined to
welcome visitors, not since the suspicious death of his wife, he's even less inclined to involve
the police. So he goes about his business as he waits for her to heal.
A reluctant voyage of mutual discovery begins as these two strangers are forced to communicate
and connect through signs and pictures as there comes a gradual understanding of
each other's language.
 But they can't stay hidden away on the farm forever. They won't be truly free until they
venture out. And when they do, the men who think they own Tahmeena come looking for her
- and they won't leave without her.

  It tells the story of a working-class Australian family who live adjacent to Melbourne's
busy airport. The family is a close-knit group who love and support each other.
The plot centres on the family's desire to keep their home despite the compulsory acquisition
order placed on it by the local authority.
Winner of the 'Best Original Screenplay' (AFI Awards) and 'Australian Movie of the Year'
(Australian Movie Convention), ‘The Castle’ is a gently satirical film which has delighted
audiences with its Australian humour.

2017 update…….. The family house, or “Castle” used in the film, was recently sold at auction
for removal to make way for some townhouses.
We are delighted to have George Fendyck and Geoff Lucas who purchased the house,
as our guest speakers, giving us an insight into the future plans for the house and steps
involved in moving it to Beechworth.

We are delighted to have Marcus Cole
, who was the Director, as our guest speaker.
"When young Spit McPhee came to live with his grandfather, the people of the Australian
country town of St. Helens feared for his future. For Fyfe McPhee was a crazy old man.
Barefoot Spit had to fend for himself along the riverbank where they lived - and when
old Fyfe died after one of his 'turns', a fierce battle to decide Spit's destiny begins”.


Come along and make it another great film year!   Cheers Lois
