Blue World Order

8:20PM - 5th Nov 2016

Exclusive preview

Directed by local film-makers Ché Baker and Dallas Bland, BLUE WORLD ORDER is a high octane action/sci-fi starring Jake Ryan (WOLF CREEK), Stephen Hunter (THE HOBBIT), Billy Zane, Jack Thompson and Bruce Spence, and filmed entirely on location in Canberra. After a nuclear war decimated the northern hemisphere, an infectious bacteria threatens to destroy the surviving population. When a self appointed government called ‘The ORDER’ distribute an immunisation to the bacteria, via a massive Electro-Macnetic Pulse (EMP) they also secretly deliver a bio-tech virus, giving them the power to control the population. One man remains immune to the Order’s virus. Now he scavenges the wasteland searching for a way to keep his unconscious daughter alive, unaware she is the last child on Earth, and the key to the survival of mankind. Unlike anything to come out of Canberra before now, this high concept film makes the most of the bushland environment and locations in the ACT. See BLUE WORLD ORDER and you will never look at Black Mountain Tower the same again. This is the very first time the Preview cut will be screened, giving Canberra locals an exclusive peek at this highly impressive post-apocalyptic adventure ahead of its international release.
