SWEET AS – Winner of the Crystal Bear at the Berlin Film Festival
Congratulations to the whole team behind SWEET AS, which took home the Crystal Bear at the Berlin Film Festival last month. This coming-of-age tale stars Shantae Barnes-Cowan as 16-year-old Indigenous girl Murra, who finds herself abandoned after an argument with her mother. An unusual lifeline is thrown her way by her Uncle Ian, a local cop, in the form of a travelling photo safari. This is an astonishing debut feature from Nyul Nyul and Yawuru writer/director Jub Clerc with Katie Milwright providing stunning visuals as Director of Photography. You can watch SWEET AS in cinemas upon its Theatrical Release in June 2023.
