WIN Double Passes to Advance Screening of CARGO w/ Filmmaker Q&A in Melbourne!
A houseboat motors down a river in rural Australia and on board is a father on a life or death mission for his daughter in Ben Howling and Yolanda Ramke’s unsettling zombie thriller that never once uses the ‘Z’ word.
Andy (Martin Freeman) has been attacked by a ‘viral’ and his time is running out. Like all victims, he has 48 hours before the virus fully takes over his body, which means he only has two days to find a new guardian for his infant daughter Rosie. The problem with living in a world devastated by a civilisation-destroying epidemic, however, is that there’s not a lot of people around to trust. Parallel to Andy’s task is the plight of Indigenous teenager Thoomi (Simone Landers), who is attempting to save her dad from his zombiefied fate with the help of her people’s spiritual leader (David Gulpilil).
Marrying a bleak dystopian narrative with an ecological parable in which Indigenous culture and folklore is essential to the narrative, CARGO is the kind of intelligent genre film filled with proper scares and deeply disquieting observations about the state of our nation that puts an electrifying jolt through Australian cinema.
