Turn Around (2002)


A romantic comedy about a young man who fantasises about a liaison with a stranger, yet fails to see the real woman before him.

Curator’s notes

A romantic comedy by Sam Saunders, Turn Around tells of the fantasy of a young man named Charlie (Wayne Munro) who goes to the city in pursuit of a woman he has met just once. Samantha Saunders refers to her film as a ‘girl fantasy’ and it is refreshing to have an all-Indigenous cast in a romantic comedy.

Other films in the AFC Indigenous Branch drama initiative Dreaming in Motion are Black Talk, Flat, Mimi and Shit Skin (all 2002).
