A minimal, modernist Australian masterpiece made with no money… The result is a miracle of a film, both strangely familiar and quite unlike any Australian movie I’ve seen.

-Broadsheet

Fresh from playing at the Melbourne International Film Festival, this film is quite an experience, set in Tasmania, and dealing with a journalist who leaves his job and searches for something that will make his life worthwhile. He finds that inspiration on two fronts: his family, which gives the film an improvised/documentary feel, and a desire to write a book about cricket. Indeed, his focus on David Boon and Tasmanian players in Test cricket as part of his research, gives the film a charming local focus. Wilson’s first feature film goes in directions that don’t normally occur in narrative cinema, plus he gives the film a strong sense of Tassie culture and family. His exploration of Hobart life in itself is worth the price of admission.

AFTER PARTY

Under the Cover of Cloud is a Hobart story made by a Hobart film maker. Join Ted Wilson and his Hobart family and mates to celebrate the Hobart way with a drink, some eats and a chat at The Duke Hotel (just up the block from the Village Cinemas). You might even see Boonie there. Ted says he will say a few words as well!
