Ocean adventure Blueback premieres under the stars

Australian Director Robert Connolly (The Dry, Paper Planes) brings Tim Winton's best-selling story Blueback to the big screen for Perth Festival's Lotterywest films.

The film follows the story of Abby, a young girl living with her environmentalist mother on the pristine southern coast. While diving, Abby forms a bond with a magnificent wild blue groper living in her local reef. Realising that the fish is under threat, Abby takes on poachers to help protect the ocean that she loves.

Another Lotterywest Films season is able to take place this summer thanks to a $7.7 million Lotterywest grant giving West Aussies the chance to enjoy some of the best films from around the world in one of Perth's most beautiful outdoor cinemas.
