HIFF Hawaiian International Film Festival

When Aboriginal Australian football player Adam Goodes called out someone in the crowd who called him an ape, he triggered a national debate that brought to the surface the dark heart of racism beating in contemporary Australia. Powerfully written by former CNN correspondent Stan Grant, THE AUSTRALIAN DREAM challenges the history of violence and dispossession that divides Australia with a call to arms as universal as it is emotional.

Shizuka is an overworked salary woman who seriously dislikes musicals. But one day when at a fair Shizuka accidentally falls under the spell of a hypnotist. Suddenly whenever she hears music she can’t help but break into song and dance! The only thing that can be done is locate the hypnotist and have him undo the spell. However, the scheming hypnotist has vanished. With the help of an unlikely friend, Shizuka embarks on a comedic, music-filled roadtrip across Japan to find him.
