Sweet As

  •   Jub Clerc
  •   Australia

Fed up with the destructive patterns of life at home, fiercely independent indigenous teen Murra seeks refuge from her mother’s incessant partying, fleeing to her uncle’s house. To help her channel her emotions, he enrolls Murra in a youth therapy excursion in the wilderness of Western Australia, where she reluctantly joins other adolescents, each battling their own demons. A pair of guides mentors the group, teaching them to use photography as a form of self-expression; Murra takes to the art form, finding a new lens through which to view not only the dramatic landscape but also her world, her dreams, and her future. Jub Clerc’s feature debut resonates as a profoundly personal and impassioned take on the coming-of-age story.
