2021/Australia/100min. Directed by Sarah Legg
We love screening local works, and 2021/22 has seen an extraordinary number of local shorts, features and documentaries, many of which are on show in our 25th-anniversary program. Cherubhead is no exception and an excellent contribution to WA’s independent film output.
An ambitious debut feature from nineteen-year-old Legg, Cherubhead tells the story of a trio of young women staying in the holiday home of socialite Marie Annette who wants to adopt teenager Ellie.
What follows is an exploration of power, conflict and identity, set within a quasi-surreal world, and with a thematic nod toward the philosophy of Machiavelli.
Cherubhead is a bold statement from the young filmmakers and a testament to homegrown talent.
