CONSTANCE ON THE EDGE (M) – Sunday 2nd October @ 2:00pm

One family. Two wars. Three countries. What does it take to forge a new life far from home?

Filmed over 10 years, Constance on the Edge is an unflinchingly honest portrayal of one refugee family’s resettlement story in Australia.

Brave, lion-hearted, charismatic Constance, mother of six, confronts her painful past in war torn Sudan, and risks everything in Australia so her family can thrive.

Mary, Constance’s niece, finds it impossible to find a job. Vicky, her daughter, studies every morning from 4am, hoping to get into university. Charles, 23, is struggling with alienation and depression.

Constance on the Edge gets to the heart of a contemporary untold story about the courage and resilience it takes to build new lives. The film also highlights the important role communities play in encouraging a sense of belonging and enabling participation for everyone.

SONORAN DOGS (G) – Friday 25th November @ 8pm

Formed in 2011, The Sonoran Dogs have exploded upon the bluegrass scene. The “Dogs” headlined the 2014 and the 2015 Prescott Bluegrass Festivals, and headlined  the 2014 Tucson Folk  Festival and the 2016 Laguna Beach, CA Bluegrass BBQ. 

They have  performed at  California’s Summergrass, Parkfield, Susanville, and Blythe Bluegrass Festivals, and for the San Diego Folk Heritage. They also performed at the Reno Nevada Bower’s Mansion Festival,  and Colorado’s Fruita Fall Festival. The Sonoran Dogs are regulars at Arizona festivals in Flagstaff, Sedona, Marana, Wickenburg, Lake Havasu, and Casa Grande. 

The group is made up of seasoned veterans who have come together to enjoy bluegrass music and friendship.

They play a collection of traditional bluegrass standards, new-grass, Americana, folk, Celtic, and original compositions.  Every concert is different, as they often improvise the set to follow the mood of their audience.  It makes for a fun and dynamic show!
