West Coast Premiere

Playing out like a twisted marriage between “Monthy Python” and “Sleeping with the Enemy,” Australian actress Mirrah Foulkes’ directorial feature debut is a one-of-a-kind, unrelenting, anarchic pummeling of the senses in the best possible way.

Judy (Mia Wasikowska) and her husband Punch (Damon Herriman) are puppeteers in the town of Seaside which is nowhere near the sea. Whilst Judy is the real talent of the duo, it’s Punch who receives all the plaudits and spends his time getting endlessly drunk. When a domestic argument escalates into detestable violence, Punch ends up killing Judy – or so he thinks. Soon, a righteously angry Judy is plotting revenge and no one in this hamlet marked by ugliness within and without will escape unscathed.

An incredible experience on the big screen, JUDY & PUNCH is visually inventive with a crazy energy all of its own making; it reinvents the classic British seaside puppet show as a revenge-horror story on entirely new terms whilst steadfastly retaining the gallows humor at the core of the original tale.
