GIVEAWAY: Q&A session with director Peter Gleeson

The Pivotonian Cinema have a rare opportunity up for grabs!

Director of the acclaimed and shocking observational documentary Hotel Coolgardie Peter Gleeson is heading to Geelong tomorrow night and there’s some free tickets to attend his Q&A session.

Following a packed out screening at last years’ Sydney Film Festival, Hotel Coolgardie garnered national headlines for its depiction of the disturbing experience of two Finnish backpackers who found themselves the latest batch of “fresh meat” sent to work as barmaids at the only pub in a remote Australian mining town.

Hotel Coolgardie is a sometimes amusing, sometimes appalling, surprisingly moving portrait of small town insularity, fragile masculinity and the plight of the outsider forced to adapt or face the consequences.

This is Gleeson’s first feature-length documentary and has been officially selected for Hot Docs, American Documentary Film Festival, Nordic International Film Festival, New Zealand International Film Festival, Cinéfest Oz and Canberra International Film Festival.
