Backyard Ashes Heads To Melbourne

Less than a fortnight after its release, Backyard Ashes, the newest film from Umbrella Entertainment, grossed over $100,000 in the box office over four regional NSW screens. Following this lucrative success, Umbrella Entertainment are bringing Backyard Ashes to Melbourne.

Starring great Australian talent — including Gold Logie winner John Wood (Blue Heelers), Andrew S Gilbert (Kiss or Kill), Felix Williamson (The Great Gatsby), comedian Damian Callinan (Spicks and Specks), and cinematographer Damian Wyvill (The Great Gatsby Goddess) — Backyard Ashes illustrates the tale of Dougie Waters and his vehement love for a snag on the barbie and some cricket with his mates. However, Dougie's paradise is quickly destroyed when his pompous English boss, Edward Lords, moves in next door.
Full of hilarious anecdotes, Backyard Ashes will place a literal meaning to Louis Nowra's famous retort in Così (1992): "Go burn a cat!"

Backyard Ashes will be screened at Waverly Cinema, Mt Waverley from Thursday December 5. Tickets are available through waverleycinema.com.au.
