Bastardy + Q&A

Special screening in memory of Uncle Jack Charles. ”

In memory of Uncle Jack Charles and this special screening will be followed by a Q&A with the director, Amiel Courtin-Wilson.
For forty years and with infectious humour and optimism, Jack Charles juggled a life of crime with another successful career – acting. Since founding the first Aboriginal theatre company, Jack performed with Australia’s most renowned actors and directors in features, TV series and plays.

Filmmaker Amiel Courtin-Wilson follows Jack over seven years – blurring the line between director and accomplice as Jack traverses the criminal and acting worlds. However, the law finally catches up and when Jack faces a jail sentence he might not survive, he is forced to decide if he can go straight for the first time in his life.

Bastardy is the story of one man’s journey into the light.
We already miss you Uncle Jack.
