Blue Bayou (USA / dir. Justin Chon / 2021 / rated M / 117m)

From award-winning writer/director Justin Chon, BLUE BAYOU is the moving and timely story of a uniquely American family fighting for their future. Antonio LeBlanc (Chon), a Korean adoptee raised in a small town in the Louisiana bayou, is married to the love of his life Kathy (Alicia Vikander) and step-dad to their beloved daughter Jessie. Struggling to make a better life for his family, he must confront the ghosts of his past when he discovers that he could be deported from the only country he has ever called home.
Featuring outstanding performances from Vikander and Chon, and mesmerising cinematography, this Cannes-nominated film takes a damning look at America’s broken immigration system as it is experienced by a small-town regional family.
“Blue Bayou hums with truth, beauty and the reality of life on the edge in America.” SMH
Fundraiser event: donations received on this night will go to a nominated charity to be confirmed shortly
