CinefestOZ: Blaze

Next screening Sunday 28 Aug from 1pm to 3pm

By Margaret River HEART & CinefestOZ | (Unclassified 18+) hr 120 mins


Blaze, a young teenager, is the sole witness to a woman being violently attacked, left catatonic with shock, she struggles to make sense of what she saw. She retreats into imaginary worlds, where the shimmering magic dragon who has been her companion since childhood, allows her to activate her own rage and ultimately find renewal. And while her childhood is shattered forever, she is finally able to walk into the future unafraid. A unique hybrid of VFX, live action, puppetry and animation, Blaze is an ode to female courage and a celebration of the power of the imagination.
