FILM: SYDNEY FILM FESTIVAL PRESENTS THE CHANGEOVER
17 Jun 2018 | 6.00pm - 7.35pmBook Tickets
A spooky tale of magic and the supernatural set in post-earthquake Christchurch, based on the Carnegie-winning YA novel by Margaret Mahy.
16-year-old Laura (Erana James) is looking after her little brother Jacko when they happen upon a sinister old man (a scary Timothy Spall) living in a shipping container full of creepy items. The old man, it turns out, is a demon, and he brands her brother with a supernatural stamp. Immediately, Jacko begins to sicken, and the only way Laura can save him is by discovering her own magic powers and battling the parasitic demon. To do that, she’ll need to overcome prejudice about magic – and enlist the help of a local coven of witches, her handsome school mate, and fellow demon fighter, Sorensen. This independent New Zealand film is spooky, original and compelling.
