Bunya Films’ distribution arm, Dark Matter, has announced the release date and trailer for Ivan Sen’s Loveland. The film is described as a romantic sci-fi set in a futuristic Asian megacity where two hardened souls meet and confront each other. The film is slated for 28 October.
A score that reminds you of Vangelis is just the start of the Blade Runner references. Some may also see hints of Wong Kar Wai’s saturated colour palette, but Loveland will be very much the Gamilaroi auteur’s own authorial vision. Sen is credited as writer, director, producer, DOP, editor and composer, and he also graded the film.
