Every part of Australia is, always was and always will be, Aboriginal land. As a community gathering-place, a festival of arts, cultural exchange and celebration and as a site for the sharing of ideas and stories, Ten Days on the Island pays respect to the palawa – original owners and cultural custodians - of all the lands and waters across lutruwita/Tasmania upon which our Festival takes place.

A family of brothers navigates a family tragedy and a perilous journey in this film based on Favel Parrett’s award-winning novel.

Set in lutruwita/Tasmania’s rugged South, Past the Shallows centres on the plight of a family of brothers as they try to negotiate the loss of their mother, a father turned to alcohol, and life as young workers on a dangerously derelict abalone fishing boat. This experimental film adaptation from director Ben Winspear and cinematographer Matt Scott casts us into a cold, dark lutruwita/Tasmania where beauty and hardship reign and where an apple from an outcast can be the kindness that saves a child, if only for a day. Follow Parrett’s characters as they attempt to land a life-changing catch – and as they finally discover the truth about their tragic upbringing.
