Very excited to see Judy & Punch hit cinemas today! Judy & Punch was a CinefestOZ Film Prize Finalist, thoroughly enjoyed throughout the festival, so we are thrilled to see it launch into cinemas across Australia today and internationally tomorrow. "In a visceral and dynamic live action reinterpretation of the famous 17th century puppet show, writer director Mirrah Foulkes turns the traditional story of Punch and Judy on its head and brings to life a fierce, darkly comic and epic female-driven revenge story, starring Mia Wasikowska and Damon Herriman." See it! Australian sessions here:
