See the first trailer for Venice contender West of Sunshine

With the Venice Film Festival due to kick off today, we have the first trailer for Australian drama West of Sunshine to show you this morning.

Jason Raftopoulos's debut film tells the story of Jim (Damien Hill) who has separated from his family because of his gambling and debt problems, and now has less than a day to repay a violent loan shark. His day is turned upside down when he must look after his young son, Alex (Ty Perham). who is on school holidays. Jim’s relationship with his son is tested as his plans to pay back the loan quickly fall to pieces. When his last desperate effort to repay the debt puts his son’s life at risk, he must make a choice between his past and a second chance at life.

West of Sunshine will premiere in the Orrizonti section of the 74th Venice Film Festival.

Keep an eye out later for our update on the films to look out for during the festival.
