MIFF x Victoria by Farmer’s Daughters: The Rooster

Hugo Weaving and Phoenix Raei play a hermit and a cop who form an unlikely connection amid crisis in this wonderfully weird sucker-punch of tenderness.

Aligning with Victoria by Farmer’s Daughters’ focus on regional produce and food culture, this Australian film is set entirely within Castlemaine and nearby surrounds. It shows off the Victorian countryside and highlights the beauty of the landscape and living off the land.
