ACUTE MISFORTUNE (SYDNEY)
Date 25 June 2019
Location Event Cinemas Westfield Bondi Junction
Join AACTA for our screening of ACUTE MISFORTUNE, followed by a Q&A with Erik Jensen – exclusive and complimentary to AFI and AACTA members and their guests.
Erik Jensen was an ambitious 19-year-old journalist at The Sydney Morning Herald when Archibald Prize-winning painter, Adam Cullen, invited him to write his biography. Based on Jensen’s award-winning biography of Cullen, ACUTE MISFORTUNE is the story of the four-and-a-half years leading to Cullen’s death at the age of 46, and of Jensen and Cullen’s increasingly claustrophobic relationship, revealing an iconic artist and lauded author in unsparing detail.
ACUTE MISFORTUNE is the debut feature of Thomas M. Wright, and features AACTA Award-winning actor Daniel Henshall (SNOWTOWN, THE BABADOOK), and Toby Wallace (ROMPER STOMPER, THE TURNING).
