Down Under Tells the story of a farmer whose life is turned upside down by a night at the movies.
Down Under won first prize in the short film competition Longing for Australia held by 20th Century Fox in December 2008. Jury members included Vincent de La Tour, General Manager of 20th Century Fox, Germany and Wim Wenders.
Down Under was shown at the premier of the Film Australia with Baz Luhrmann and Hugh Jackman in attendance.
“In Down Under, Detsky Graffam shows a remarkably confident visual style.”
Trivia: Bar the farmer and his wife, all other actors are locals from the village where the film was shot: Lassan, in Mecklenburg Vorpommern.
