MADE IN AUSTRALIA on Pozible – The story of the project
The film’s title appears, ‘MADE IN AUSTRALIA’. The opening scene introduces the thematic journey; all characters will be stripped of all their pride. The divide between cultural heritage and the now has never been wider, and the recurring theme of male emasculation will be prevalent.
“People act very strange when they lose face”
The audience travels on a journey, unveiling the fractured identity of Asian culture and the cultural issues surrounding second-generation born Australasians. The characters inhabiting this story manifest themselves through cheating, lying, bullying and manipulating, a desperate need to fulfill a life of emptiness.
This story takes place in both Australia and Hong Kong, exposing the audience to the clash of cultures that drive these characters over the edge. With true life experiences shaping the narrative, ‘Made In Australia’ is painfully realistic.
“Not based on a true story, but a true story.”
-Matt Pastor (Writer & Director), Made In Australia
