What better way to start the week than with free tickets! And not only do I have passes to give away to Beck Cole's striking feature debut Here I Am, I'll also be hosting a Q&A screening with Cole, producer Kath Shelper and star Shai Pittman. The Q&A will take place on Thursday 2nd June at Palace Verona - see the website for more details.
Here's the official synopsis:
"I'm not getting my hopes up, but yeah, I'm hopeful."
Karen (Shai Pittman) is a beautiful young woman with a dark past, but she's got potential and she knows it. Fresh out of prison, she finds herself on the streets with a burning desire to turn her life around but no one to call for help. Eventually she finds a haven at a shelter for women like herself. With the support of her new community of friends, Karen begins the journey of reconnecting with her estranged mother and her young daughter, and she is soon propelled to face the most difficult truths of her life. But she's determined never to give up. Set and shot in and around Port Adelaide, Here I Am is a moving and hopeful story about the strength and resilience of women.
