Aussie film at mu­sic venue

Augusta Margaret River Times - - Front Page -

One of Mar­garet River’s most pro­lific live mu­sic venues will this week­end host an exclusive sneak peek of a new Aussie film, which fit­tingly tells the tale of an as­pir­ing mu­si­cian and fea­tures a raft of WA acts.

Di­rected by Bassendean mu­sic pro­ducer and di­rec­tor Peter Ren­zullo, An­tic­i­pa­tion fol­lows the tur­bu­lent tale of a mu­si­cian bat­tling so­cial anx­i­ety, fam­ily woes and his own self-sab­o­tage.

“It deals with a lot of big top­ics like men­tal health is­sues and fam­ily dy­nam­ics,” Ren­zullo said.

“These are things that get in the way of a lot of mu­si­cians . . . and I think a lot of peo­ple can re­late to it.” Film­ing took place at a range of sites across the South West and fea­tures lo­cal tal­ent.

Ren­zullo chose Set­tlers Tav­ern as the first screen­ing site be­cause of its long­stand­ing rep­u­ta­tion as a live mu­sic hotspot.

“It’s just a great venue — I’ve per­formed there and loved it,” he said.

This Satur­day, from 8pm, cast mem­bers will per­form acous­tic sets fol­lowed by a screen­ing of the first 35 min­utes of the film.

Per­for­mances by Beau­ti­ful Car­tel, The Milk­men and Dilip N’ The Davs — all of whom fea­ture in the film — will start from 9.30pm.

En­try is free.

Glenn Her­bert stars in An­tic­i­pa­tion.
