First trailer for Aussie crime drama ‘Watch the Sunset’

by Kevin Haldon


Shot in just one take, BarrLipp Productions’ gritty crime drama Watch The Sunset follows an ex-bikie who is trying to reunite his broken family torn apart by his devastating drug addiction. Now “Shot in one take” doesn’t always work on the big screen and feels more suited for TV shows but I am always interested in seeing how its done. On top of that this film is “based on Real Events” and it’s Aussie; and I am all about Aussie true crime drama (check out movies like Wolf Creek, Chopper or the long running series Underbelly (incredible), so I am in!

Watch The Sunset has an underlying theme about effects of Crystal Meth or Ice, which is very real contemporary Australian issue; and the one shot concept of the film allows the viewers to observe the harsh reality of this regional problem on an intimate and raw level. But at the core of this film we find a story of love and an unrelenting quest for redemption.

Official synopsis:

Outlaw bikie member Danny Biaro wants to change his ways and start a new life with his estranged family. But his past quickly catches up to him and he is compelled to make a decision that will affect his life forever. Now he must race against the clock to save his family.

Watch The Sunset stars Tristan Barr, Chelsea Zeller, Annabelle Williamson, Aaron Walton, Michael Gosden, Zia Zantis-Vinycomb, Catherine Dawson, and Dennis Robertson. Check our interview with star and co-director Tristan Barr right here.
