A black comedy set during the aftermath of the Cronulla riots, Down Under is the story of two carloads of hotheads from both sides of the fight destined to collide. Sincere, though misguided, intent gives way to farcical ineptitude as this hilarious, sometimes crass yet very poignant story of ignorance, fear and kebab-cravings unfolds, and what was meant to be a retaliation mission turns into something neither side could have imagined.

Deliberately provocative and confronting racism head on, writer-director Abe Forsythe takes a balanced look at the ridiculous side of a serious subject.
