I’M WANITA – Film & Live Q&A Session
Sat October 16 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Special Q&A screening on October 16, 6.30pm with musician Gleny Rae Virus – don’t miss it!
I’m Wanita is the story of a chaotic, flamboyant force of nature & her lifelong odyssey to realise her childhood dream. Based in Australia’s ‘Country Music Capital’, Tamworth, Wanita (self-dubbed as “Australia’s Queen Of Honky Tonk”) lives her own unique version of the rough-talking, hard-drinking, country music lifestyle. Devoted to the sound & personalities of classic country and clearly “born in the wrong era”, Wanita commits to walk in the footsteps of her honkytonk idols. Deciding to record an album in Nashville, Wanita assembles an unlikely team: fellow musicians Gleny Rae and Archer.
Using a combination of observational, on-the-run interviews & live performance, the film follows Wanita over a tumultuous five years as she tries to redirect her reckless life to fulfill her potential & have one last stab at her dream – before it’s too late.
