Streets Of Colour Premieres In Mount Druitt

Streets Of Colour Premieres In Mount Druitt

“Having grown up in Mount Druitt, and working at Hoyts Cinemas as a projectionist, it’s just a full circle moment to bring Streets of Colour home to Mounty County on the big screen where my film dreams all started,” Streets of Colour writer/director Ronnie S. Riskalla tells FilmInk.

Streets of Colour, the powerful debut drama from Australian writer/director Ronnie S. Riskalla, bristles with rage and anger while making a desperate plea for peace and understanding. Boasting an extraordinary lead performance from Rahel Rohman (The Combination, Shantaram, Here Out West), and a white-hot authenticity rarely glimpsed in Australian cinema, Streets of Colour is a truly contemporary and utterly unforgettable work.

As well as its deeply affecting characters and their emotional crises, Streets of Colour is also defined by its dazzling use of real-life locations, with Riskalla’s mobile camera gliding and sliding its way through the vibrant streets of Sydney’s western suburbs, so rarely captured on screen in Australian movies. “The film provides a gripping look into a world that is familiar to many, but also the underground world that a lot of people would never experience – the world of Western Sydney,” Riskalla tells FilmInk.

Ronnie S. Riskalla grew up in the western Sydney suburb of Mount Druitt, and before moving into the heady world of filmmaking, worked for several years as a projectionist from the age of seventeen at the multiplex in Mount Druitt, and then later as a head projectionist at the much bigger multiplex at Wetherill Park. “Film is my life, I always have to be connected to film and I always knew my first job would be in either a video store or at a cinema,” Riskalla explains.

In a huge moment for Ronnie S. Riskalla, Streets of Colour will now have a very special premiere at Hoyts in Mount Druitt, complete with a pre-screening red carpet, a special media wall, photographers, appearances from the film’s cast and crew, as well as involvement from major players from the local community.

“I’m just really proud to bring the film where it all began,” says Ronnie Riskalla enthusiastically.

Streets of Colour will have a very special premiere screening at Hoyts Cinemas, Mount Druitt on Wednesday, August 23 at 6:45pm. Click here for all ticketing and session details.
