London Australian Film Society presents: A Sunburnt Christmas UK premiere

December 16, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

a sunburnt christmas

Join the London Australian Film Society for a white wine in the sun this Christmas!

In the Australian outback, Christmas is stinking – stinking hot mostly – but for one struggling farming family, it just plain stinks. Dad is gone, mum is losing the plot, and the bank is trying to take the farm.

It’s looking unlikely that there’ll be anything under the tree this year, until a strange looking Santa Claus turns up with a panel van full of toys. But this Father Christmas is not what he seems…. He’s running from something and the kids suspect it isn’t an angry elf or a hungry reindeer.

Daniel Henshall (Snowtown, The Royal Hotel) stars as Daryl, a Santa-clad criminal on the run, in this directorial debut feature by actor and comedian Christiaan Van Vuuren (Bondi Hipsters, Queen of Oz). Produced exclusively for the Australian streaming platform, Stan, join us for the UK premiere of this hilarious and very irreverent holiday flick.

Come stock up on your holiday break Australian snacks and sweets at our shop, and a raffle will be held before the screening.

With thanks to Stan and All3Media.
