SYNOPSIS

For millennia the remote arid deserts of Western Australia lay undisturbed. On the 14th of June 1893 European prospectors discovered ‘The Golden Mile’ on what was the traditional lands of the local Indigenous people. In little over a hundred years a natural landscape has transformed into the industrial hellscape of Kalgoorlie-Boulder. As the incumbent Mayor of Kalgoorlie-Boulder, John Bowler, starts his campaign for a second term, independent prospector John ‘General Hercules’ Katahanas, decides to run against him on a ticket of anti-corruption. What starts out as a quirky David v Goliath political battle, unravels into a portrait of a man, a town and a country, sent mad by the timeless cycles of exploitation, racism and greed.


Why not plan a South West adventure at the same time as CinefestOZ? We recommend making accommodation, restaurant and tour bookings early to avoid disappointment. Plan your stay and 'wander out yonder' with Western Australia in Australia’s South West and Visit Bunbury Geographe.
