Warm Up to Wine + Film: An Australian Showcase

Thursday, June 11, 6 pm

Join us on the Brushmark terrace as we sample wines and hors d’oeuvres from Australia during our ever-popular Warm up to Wine celebration.  Then, come down to the Brooks auditorium to see the award-winning Aussie film, Kenny, winner of Best Film, Best Script, and Best Sound at the Australian Inside Film Awards. Kenny is a mockumentary comedy about an optimistic man with a laundry list of obstacles; including his job as a portapotty handler and dealing with his ex-wife. Director, producer, and creator of the film, Clayton Jacobson, says that “Kenny represents the humbling nature of common decency”(1). Kenny takes pride in his work and in his family, the latter being surprisingly the one thing Kenny just can’t get right. In the film, Kenny deals with the dirty background of parties an outdoor events unflinched and unappreciated. After travelling to the expo for plumbing supplies in Nashville, TN, Kenny finally earns what he has unconsciuosly been working to achieve.

“Kenny is the funniest film I’ve seen this year. I haven’t laughed this hard in a long time.” – Michael Moore, Filmmaker

“Kenny is much more than just a very funny film, it’s a film with a good heart and a sharp eye on the human condition…”-Chris Samuel, Blogger
