Craig Boreham’s celebrated Teenage Kicks, that enjoyed its world premiere at last year’s Sydney Film Festival, has been one of those rare breed of Australian films that’s slowly made its way around the globe throughout 2016. Focusing in on the heady intoxicating collision of teenage angst, burgeoning sexuality and personal tragedy, Teenage Kicks has enjoyed a rapturous critical reception which The Guardian describes as:
“…a gutsy coming-of-age story that signals the arrival of a compelling new voice in queer Australian cinema.” (4 Stars)
Well, it’s time to bring the film home as Azure Productions and Village Cinemas Jam Factory are playing host to an exclusive screening on Thursday 23 February, 2017 with a post show Question and Answer session with director Craig Boreham.

Synopsis: In the summer of his 17th birthday, Mik Vagas’s world has come tumbling down. His plan to run away and escape the hold of his migrant family has been brutally undone by the unexpected death of his older brother, Tomi. Only Mik knows the events that led to the tragedy and as far as he can see there is only one person to blame. Himself.
He is suddenly torn between his desire to start a new life with his best friend Dan and the obligation to his broken family. Can he fill the shoes of his adored sibling or is he toxic and destined to bring ruin upon everyone he loves.
Teenage Kicks is a journey through the minefield of adolescence as Mik searches for a way to navigate through his guilt and his explosive sexuality to find the man he can be.
