Head On
Ana Kokkinos' (The Book of Revelation) audacious debut feature follows the ferocious excesses of 19-year-old Greek-Australian Ari (Alex Dimitriades) and his attempts to survive in a claustrophobic and alienating world.

Based on the novel Loaded by Christos Tsiolkas, Head On is full of power, aggression, antipathy and a groaning sexuality. Stylistically bold and pulsating with urgency, the film makes no moral judgement in its carnal depiction of contemporary sexual politics.

'Australian cinema came of age with this no-holds-barred exploration of an adolescent's quest for freedom within a perceived constricted culture; it is truly astonishing at every turn' Urban Cinefile

'A powerful account of contemporary urban living' Oxford Companian to Australian Film
