Movie Info

An unspoken event has caused civilization to crumble, leaving the survivors to cluster in the wilderness. Among them is a blind girl who struggles to survive with her father - a paranoid schizophrenic clown. As she dreams of what may exist beyond this wasteland, her father is increasingly consumed by fear, paranoia and hysteria. REFLECTIONS IN THE DUST is a powerful allegory for the epidemic of violence against women in Australia and is dedicated to the countless women who continue to lose their lives on a weekly basis at the hands of a male. The Australian government deemed the film was too extreme for audiences and strongly suggested it not be completed during production, however director Luke Sullivan pushed on with the film, asserting that such an extreme story needs to be told in an era where 'we are losing grandmothers, mothers, sisters and friends to senseless acts of violence perpetrated by men'.

  • In the end, the film seems as manipulative as the corrosive bond that it's out to dissect.

  • ...this is a memorable experience and Sullivan is a filmmaker to watch.

  • Sullivan's approach is bold, ambitious and primed to make an impact; however it's Houbolt and Queere's performances that ensures the film hits home.

    Jun 12, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Reflections In The Dust lacks the immediate and quite visceral impact of Luke Sullivan's previous work, but it still shows him taking a tremendous risk in how he bends the rules of storytelling to fit his vision.

  • Watching Houbolt in this film is simply a gift, and filmmakers - not just in Australia, but around the world - should take Sullivan's lead and continue to create roles of this depth, diversity and value for actors of this caliber.
