is the story of men on the edge of a brutal prison system and their relationships with the women they have loved and left behind.
To describe this beautifully composed, moving film as a 'prison drama' denies Lawrence Johnston's haunting movie the full range of its compelling grip on any number of universal concerns about love, life and the complexity of human relationships.
Winner of the FIPRESCI International Critic's Prize at the 1996 Toronto Film Festival, Life
was also nominated for four Australian Film Institute Awards and four Australian Film Critic's Circle Awards including Best Actor and Best Screenplay.
Director Lawrence Johnston will introduce the film.
