"We Don’t Need a Map is the Opening Night Film of the 2017 Sydney Film Festival.
Of course it is! The film explores the history and meaning of the Southern Cross and is sure to provoke a hearty debate … because it taps into the complex heart of who we are as Australians.
Featuring tracks by AB Original’s Adam Briggs and leading Aussie rock-punk acts such as The Drones, Frenzal Rhomb, The Saints and Rowland S Howard, the film is a bold statement from the first frame.
We Don’t Need A Map is produced by award winning film-maker Brendan Fletcher. "
"At once benignly mischievous and profoundly serious, We Don’t Need a Map... is a pertinent message for the director’s countrymen and an eye-opening lesson for the world about the proud history and ongoing racial tensions that currently form the crux of the Australian experience … (it) achieves that unique tone of Australian self-deprecation tempered by frustration but resolutely remaining positive about the future.”
"We Don't Need A Map, for our money, is the best Sydney Film Festival opening night selection in memory."
