London Australian Film Festival

20th Anniversary Screening


The London Australian Film Festival is thrilled to present the twentieth anniversary screening of Erskineville Kings. Long before Wolverine and The Greatest Showman, a charismatic young actor named Hugh Jackman burst onto Australian screens in this brilliant low-budget ensemble drama set in Sydney’s rough “inner-west” suburbs.


Sparks fly when Barky (Martin Dennis) returns home for his father’s funeral, and a reunion with his estranged brother Wace (Jackman). Old wounds are reopened and home truths emerge, as Barky and Wace do battle over their chequered past, and the legacies of their abusive single father.


Don’t miss this extremely rare chance to catch the film on the big screen as it celebrates its twentieth anniversary with a new digital print specially created for this screening.


“Gritty urban drama…extremely fine camerawork and strong ensemble performances” – David Stratton (Variety)
