Gringo

Director NASH EDGERTON live at Nova for an exclusive Melbourne Q&A screening of all-star black comedy GRINGO! Friday June 15, 6.30pm, presented by AACTA (Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts). Moderated by director Greg McLean (Wolf Creek, Jungle).

Nash Edgerton (The Square) directs a black comedy set in the brave new world of legalized cannabis, where legitimate fortunes are to be made and murderous drug dealing cartels stand to be the biggest losers.

An exhilarating mix of comedy, white-knuckle action and drama, GRINGO finds mild-mannered businessman Harold Soyinka (David Oyelowo) at the mercy of his back-stabbing corporate colleagues (Joel Edgerton and a vampy Charlize Theron) and a wife who is gradually sending him broke (Thandie Newton). Sent to a company facility in Mexico to check on the progress of a 'pot pill' that is poised to dominate the market once the government gives the go-ahead, Harold quickly becomes the target of local drug lords and a morally conflicted black-ops mercenary (Sharlto Copley). Crossing the line from law-abiding citizen to wanted criminal, Harold battles to survive his increasingly dangerous situation in ways that raise the question: Is he out of his depth - or two steps ahead?
