Leading actors from the Stan Original Series ROMPER STOMPER attended the World Premiere tonight at Village Cinemas, Jam Factory in Melbourne.
Director Geoffrey Wright was joined at the Premiere by the show’s stars Jacqueline McKenzie, Sophie Lowe, Lily Sullivan, Lachy Hulme, Dan Wyllie, Nicole Chamoun, Markella Kavenagh, Jamie Abdallah and producers John & Dan Edwards.
A high stakes crime drama, ROMPER STOMPER picks up on the themes and story of Geoffrey Wright’s ground-breaking and controversial 1992 film. Twenty five years on, the six-part drama follows a new generation of the activist Right, their Anti-Fascist counterparts and three young Lebanese Muslims caught between the conflict.
The six-part thriller brings the battle of opposing views into the modern-day context where hard right agitators have traded swastikas for the southern cross. Told from multiple points of view, ROMPER STOMPER eerily echoes recent events and groups currently active in Melbourne and Australia. Set in the present day, it deals with political and social issues and highlights the shift of extremism from the fringe to the suburbs.
All six episodes of Stan Original Series ROMPER STOMPER will premiere exclusively on Stan on January 1
