Little Tornadoes + Q&A
Set in 1971 rural Australia, LITTLE TORNADOES explores family dynamics with an absence of women, and a father’s need to cope with change as he raises two young children alone.
The film distils the many upheavals of 1970s Australia – from immigration and post-war resettlement, to anti-Vietnam War protests and the women’s liberation movement – into a narrative about one man’s struggle to adapt and a new immigrant endeavouring to find her place in a foreign land. LITTLE TORNADOES is a portrait of a country at a turning point and the human desire for connection.
Screening followed by a Q+A with director Aaron Wilson and writer (and local legend), Christos Tsiolkas).
