Words With Gods

OPENING NIGHT GALA with live entertainment and special guests WARWICK THORNTON & DAMIAN WALSHE-HOWLING

Words with Gods is a strikingly shot anthology film directed by nine internationally acclaimed directors, tackling questions of faith and spirituality across the world.  The stories are set in diverse locations, ranging from the Australian outback to the post-tsunami coast of Japan; from a mosque in Kurdistan to a high-rise in Mumbai. The films are linked by the collective search for connection with the divine. One standout chapter in the series is directed by multi-award winning filmmaker Warwick Thornton (Samson & Delilah) and stars Darwin-born actress Miranda Tapsell.

Also screening short film Messiah directed by actor & director Damian Walshe-Howling and starring Territory legend David Gulpilil.
