Jeremy / El Jeremías   |   Monday 12th September  7:45pm

AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE & SCREENING ONCE ONLY

Jeremías is a clever and inquisitive boy who has learnt to accept life as an outsider. He spends his time trying to figure out what he wants to be when he grows up: a rock n roll superstar, unbeatable chess champion or brilliant mathematician. As Jeremías navigates the adult world, he comes to realise what he wants to be is a lot easier than he thought.
