Sweet Country

  • Liz Chege

Project management and grassroots support/regional marketing campaign in Bristol for the film "Sweet Country" (distributed by Thunderbird Releasing). The film was released in the UK on March 9th 2018. A sweeping, historical epic set against the brutal backdrop of a stunning Australian landscape in 1920s Alice Springs, SWEET COUNTRY follows the story of Sam (Hamilton Morris), a middle-aged Aborigine man who becomes a wanted criminal after a violent altercation with a bitter war veteran. When Sam is forced to flee across the harsh desert country, pursued by a hunting party led by the local lawman, the true details of his supposed crime start to surface, and the community begins to question whether justice is really being served. Special Jury Prize - 74th Venice Film Festival Platform Prize - 42nd Toronto International Film Festival Competition - 61st BFI London Film Festival

I focused on engaging the local Australian community in Bristol and independent film fans via social media and word of mouth.
