Release Year: 2019

Starring: Aisling Franciosi, Sam Claflin, Michael Sheasby, Baykali Ganambarr

Set in 1825 in colonial Tasmania, Clare, a young Irish convict, chases a British officer through the rugged Tasmanian wilderness, bent on revenge for a terrible act of violence he committed against her family. On the way she enlists the services of an Aboriginal tracker named Billy, who is also marked by trauma from his own violence-filled past.

Attention: The Nightingale features potentially triggering acts of sexual violence, as well as violence towards children and Tasmanian Aboriginal people. The reason for this is to show an authentic and honest representation of Tasmanian history during colonization.

Playing before each screening of The Nightingale is the short film Kaya directed by Catherine Fordham (Nitehawk Shorts Festival alum).

A woman’s desperate search through truck stops and motels explodes in vigilante justice when she discovers a young girl being trafficked by the same crew of truckers who took her teenage sister.
