Sweet As premieres at Melbourne International Film Festival

The Breakfast Club meets the outback in the uplifting coming-of-age road movie, Sweet As. This debut feature from Nyul Nyul and Yawuru writer/director Jub Clerc, follows Murra, a 15-year-old Indigenous girl from Port Hedland in Western Australia. Murra is played by rising star Shankar Barnes-Cowan (pictured above). Sweet As is shot by cinematographer Katie Milwright ACS.

This is the first Western Australian feature film to be written and directed by a female Indigenous person, with original support through Screenwest’s West Coast Visions program.

Sweet As is premiering this August at the Melbourne International Film Festival.
