Australian movie-making; I am a massive fan.
Beautiful and poignant, LITTLE SPARROWS traces the emotional journey of three sisters whose life stories dovetail with their mother’s. While imparting wisdom and encouragement to help her daughters define themselves, the mother (played magnificently by Nicola Bartlett) searches for a way to hold them close forever. LITTLE SPARROWS allows a spark of optimism to glimmer through the messiness and unfinished business inherent to all lives and families.
The debut feature film of Western Australian director Yu-Hsiu Camille Chen has been described by festival organisers and film reviewers as ‘nuanced and heartrending’, ‘intelligently conceived’ and ‘brilliantly written’. Screening around the world to sold-out cinemas, LITTLE SPARROWS has received standing ovations, rave reviews and awards, making it one of the most lauded films to be made in WA.
