Kairos M

View Trailer

One of the breakout stars of Down Under (MIFF 2016) and Little Monsters (MIFF 2019), Chris Bunton packs a formidable punch in this trailblazing Australian drama – a rare local film that places both a performer and a character with Down Syndrome at its centre.

Bunton plays Danny, who wants to box as a way to earn respect, confidence and acceptance, and to prove that he’s more than his disability. Ex-fighter and trainer John takes Danny under his wing; however their mentoring relationship takes a beating when a sparring session accidentally turns violent.

Kairos is the first feature from Australian actor-turned-director Paul Barakat. Collaborating closely with Bunton, this is a powerful and empathetic coming-of-age tale filled with complex characters and themes alike.

Guests: Audrey O'Connor, Chris Bunton, Paul Barakat
