‘No Through Road’ to make TV debut!

30 Apr

Nakatomi’s universal tale of hope in the suburbs will be playing on New Zealand pay TV channel ‘Rialto’ on the 21st of June this year.  Tell all of your Kiwi associates to set their alarm clocks (or recording devices) to 12:25am.  You may think we are dismayed at the late time slot, however we are delighted as this qualifies our little film as a ‘Midnight Movie’.  Move over Pink Flamingos and El Topo, the ‘screwdriver film’ is here!

Excerpt from Rialto’s website:

“During the past ten years the channel has grown from a niche arthouse film channel to New Zealand’s premiere independent specialist film, documentary and entertainment channel.  Rialto Channel viewers are given a wider choice of diverse and engaging programming that is often not available anywhere else on New Zealand television”.

Closer to home this time, NO THROUGH ROAD has been accepted into the Melbourne Underground Film Festival. Running from the 9th to 19th of October. With more than a slight fondness for guerrilla film-making, each year they give awards for ‘Most Gratuitous use of Sex’ and ‘Most Gratuitous use of Violence’ (lets hope we win the latter), as well as all the old favorites.

No Through Road premiere screening

20 Dec

No Through RoadThe premiere of No Through Road was held at the prestigious Astor Cinema, on Beaufort St in the centre of Perth. It received a very positive response from all attendees, from various age ranges. No-one has mentioned any of the more outwardly violent scenes in a negative way at all – i.e. the characters and story justified the action in the film. The audience atmosphere was electric; all the gasps, laughs and cheers happened in all the right places. Many people were eager to find out when they could see it again / get a copy and see it again / show it to others. The after-party was a buzz with people discussing the film and enjoying the opportunity to discuss it with the cast and crew. The Film & Television Institute also published this article.
