Karg, hårdför outback – full av original – möter skör far- och dotterrelation i färgmättad australisk indiedebut.
Milena anländer till det lilla samhället på den australiska landsbygden för att träffa sin sjuka pappa, som hon har risig kontakt med. Eftersom hennes egna framtidsplaner är oklara installerar hon sig i hans skjul-liknande hem, i väntan på att den burduse fadern ska komma hem från sjukhuset. Ensam och utsatt, men kaxig och öppen, möter hon de frihetsälskande ensamvargarna som slagit sig ner långt bort från civilisationen, för att försörja sig och kanske hitta en skatt i någon av områdets opalgruvor. Strange Colours är en debut som blandar dokumentärliknande personporträtt med stämningsfyllda bilder av en ständigt fascinerande del av Australien.

Alena Lodkina

Regissör: Alena Lodkina

Alena Lodkina, born in 1989, is a Russian-born filmmaker based in Melbourne, Australia. She has made fiction and documentary short films that have played at festivals around the world. Strange colours is her first feature film.

When I first travelled to a remote opal mining community called Lightning Ridge several years ago, I was drawn into a wild world – misfits, loners and dreamers brought together by the hope of striking it lucky on precious gems. Time paused, as beer after beer was drunk through the hot dry days. A last frontier in the middle of nowhere, a haunting stage for fiction to unfold. I thought about the promises of escape, and about getting lost. I wanted to tell a story of three lonely people floating in this unique microcosm with its own ideals and rules, surrounded by vast stretches of bush. A closed off, strong willed daughter longs to know her absent father before he dies and travels here for the first time. The father is cracked open by the past he’s abandoned. An enigmatic miner is thrown into a fleeting romance despite his reclusive lifestyle. The characters seek connection with one another, but are torn apart by themselves and the world around them. They struggle to find what to say. Such feelings are familiar to me, as an overwhelmed human in a world ruled by the relentless speed of progress.
