MONSTER FEST TRAVELLING SIDESHOW Adelaide Guest Announcement & Ticketing Details!

02 June 2017

We’re psyched to announce that DESCENT INTO THE MAELSTROM‘s writer, producer & director Jonathan Sequeira will be joining us on opening night for a Q&A following the Adelaide Premiere of his film at MONSTER FEST TRAVELLING SIDESHOW.

Sydney, Australia. 1974. A group of outsiders band together with a mission. In world of satin jumpsuits and screaming teens on Countdown, they form the high energy rock’n’roll band RADIO BIRDMAN, forever determined to keep compromise from their art. Switched off, shut down and booted out of venue after venue they stay determined to do things their own way, and they slowly accumulate a cult-like following of youth, a ‘New Race’ of disaffected youth who rally around the band. DESCENT INTO THE MAELSTROM is the true story of RADIO BIRDMAN, from their original formation to the present. Like the band itself, it’s an independent production, made from outside the industry. It shows what the band meant to the fans, and how they changed Australia, by inspiring a golden age of indie music from Cold Chisel to Midnight Oil. DESCENT INTO THE MAELSTROM features interviews with all surviving members of the band and doesn’t shy away from the internal conflict which sometimes fuelled the band’s performances. It’s already been called the greatest Australian music documentary ever made and is crammed full of RADIO BIRDMAN music and rare archival footage and photos, some not seen for over 40 years!

After making waves internationally with its recent acquisition by Lionsgate in the US, Aussie found footage creature-feature CAGE DIVE has been added to the line-up, rearing its fins for an Adelaide premiere on Saturday July 22nd. 

Three American college students head down under to capture Great White Sharks on film. But when a freak wave capsizes their boat mid cage dive they are left fighting for and against each other in the world’s most dangerous Shark infested waters.
