"Love is the only fuel you need..."
Prime Mover is a new Australian film directed by David Caesar (Mullet, Dirty Deeds), which will embark on a road trip throughout regional NSW this Thursday. The two week exclusive 'country' preview season is believed to be a first, and celebrates the communities and locations where Prime Mover was filmed.
The film opens nationally on November 12, and Transmission Films has generously given us 10 in-season double passes for indie art & design to giveaway! Check that you can make it to one of the cinemas where Prime Mover will be screening (listed below), and comment on this post by Friday 6th November to enter!

Starring an ensemble cast of Australian actors, including Michael Dorman, Emily Barclay, Ben Mendelsohn and William McInnes, Prime Mover is a diesel charged romance about ambition, pressure, responsibility and the love shared by a man, a woman and his truck. It is a bitter sweet crowd pleaser with action, some singing and a little bit of dance.
Dorman plays a talented truck pinstriper in Prime Mover, and there is a special section on the web site devoted to the various trucks and other vehicles that star in the film! The web site itself is really impressive, with a truckin' interface & an oversized load of pics...
"A funny and moving slice of everyday life mixed with a smattering of magic realism, Prime Mover offers a whole new perspective on the Australian trucking way of life." Melbourne International Film Festival
