Introverted Leo is a metalworker at his small town’s local plant. After his wife vanishes, leaving him to care for their two young children, he is bereft – barely able to cook a decent meal or keep the household running.

So, when a recently arrived Italian colleague suggests that his sister, Maria, act as surrogate homemaker, Leo reluctantly accepts. But can one woman’s warm, nurturing presence fill the void left by another, and can Leo yield to the winds of change? The film distils the many upheavals of 1970s Australia – from immigration and post-war resettlement, to urbanisation, anti–Vietnam War protests and the women’s liberation movement – into a narrative about one man’s struggle to adapt.

Little Tornadoes is a portrait of a country at a turning point and the human desire for connection.

Doors open at 5pm to allow patrons to enjoy the Margaret River HEART onsite cash bar and kiosk. For more information on the Margaret River HEART including the location, information and to subscribe to their newsletter, please click here https://www.margaretriverheart.com.au/visit-us/
