Watch The Sunset – ‘Meet The Filmmaker’ screenings
Watch the Sunset follows Danny Biaro, a man desperately trying to escape the outlaw bikie gang he pledged his life to, The Bloodless Brothers. Tortured by his drug involved past and the choices that led to the disintegration of his new family, Danny longs to be reunited with Sally, the love of his life, and their daughter Joey.
In violently breaking his bond with his gang, and freeing a young woman, Danny sets into motion a series of events that will change his world, and those around him forever. Danny must now race against the clock, and the gang, to reach his estranged family before it’s too late.
But will his newfound courage be in vain as the consequences of his past collide with his desire for a new beginning? Watch the Sunset dives head first into a world fueled by drugs, violence and a fight for the redemption.
Co-directors Tristan Barr and Michael Gosden come together for a debut feature film shot completely in a single take by Director of Photography Damian Lipp, an extraordinary feat of timing and choreography over 89 mins on location in the regional Victorian town of Kerang.
Barr and Gosden also star in the film alongside an impressive cast which includes Chelsea Zeller, Aaron Walton, Zia Zantis-Vinycomb and introducing 7-year-old Annabelle Williamson in her breakthrough performance.
