  • Monday August 19 | 7:00pm

Exploiting genre tradition, Lambert investigates the pressures faced by a group of women, between work, love, sexuality, and family. Amidst their personal tribulation is their shared desire to destroy a biomedical supercomputer nefariously hoarding information—before documenting it on polemical film. A feminist adventure thriller on reproductive ethics, largely unseen and unfairly so.

Screens with Gillian Armstrong’s Adelaidian doco on young womanhood, Smokes and Lollies.
