Seated in the cinema and a Q&A with Shantae Barnes-Cowan
7.30 – 9.15pm
SWEET AS is the debut feature film from Indigenous writer/ director Jub Clerc, inspired by
her own journey of becoming a filmmaker.
Starring Tasma Walton (MYSTERY ROAD, CLEVERMAN), Mark Coles Smith (LAST CAB TO
DARWIN, MYSTERY ROAD SEASON 3), Chilean-Cuban-Australian actor Carlos Sanson Jr
(BUMP) and a magnetic Shantae Barnes-Cowan (TOTAL CONTROL, FIREBITE) in the lead, it
is an effervescent story of growth, acceptance and the journey towards finding oneself. With
postcard-perfect shots of remote Western Australia and a road-trip-worthy soundtrack of all-
Indigenous artists, SWEET AS is a joyous, cinematic, life-affirming ride.
