To celebrate International Women’s Day, the London Australian Film Society, in conjunction with Regent Street Cinema, is proud to present an exclusive preview screening of thrilling western The Drover’s Wife, featuring an exclusive pre-recorded introduction from the film’s writer, director and star Leah Purcell.

A labour of love for Purcell, The Drover’s Wife is her third adaptation of Henry Lawson’s Australian classic short story of the same name, having previously adapted as a play and a novel. Purcell’s cinematic version is a thrilling tale that tells of the racism and misogyny of colonial outback Australia – and one woman’s determination to thrive within it.

About the Organisation

The London Australian Film Society (LAFS) has operated for nearly 40 years, beginning with regular screenings of new Australian films in the cinema room of Australia House. Under the direction of Laila Dickson since 2011, the last decade has seen a significant expansion of the LAFS audience, drawing ex-pats and Londoners to screenings of Australian films at venues across the city, and as part of the annual London Australian Film Festival.
