DAGS WILL INHERIT THE EARTH

Canberra has been chosen as the launch pad for Australia’s latest and daggiest comedy, DAGS. Twenty five double passes to this low-budget, low-brow, high-smile movie have been won courtesy Ronin Films and Urban Cinefile. Dags opens on October 15; passes valid all sessions at Electric Shadows cinema, Canberra.

What is DAGS?
Murray Fahey’s film is a mockumentary with a daggy sense of style: "According to the film, a male dag likes football, sex and procreation, while the female dag indulges in fashion, music and furry upper lips. The explanations are illogical, the humour base, yet there is a rough appeal about Dags, which canvases issues of unemployment, eating fast food, kidnapping and the pressure of getting married, with humour and a sense of the absurd," says an amused Louise Keller.

WINNERS:
Double passes will be mailed directly to winners by Ronin Films.

Dags is the story of a group of friends pursuing their hopes and dreams. Cheryl (Tanya Bulmer) dumps her pot smoking loser boyfriend Daryl (Brian Roberts) outside the local video store and is immediately taken hostage during a fake robbery by Trevor (David Callan), who has conspired with the video store assistant, Kevin (Daniel Cordeaux), to rob him, in order for them both to achieve instant fame. When the local media hear of Cheryl’s kidnapping, all three are thrust into the spotlight but end up with more than they bargained for.
