Join us for an advance screening of The Furnace, followed by a virtual Q&A with director Roderick MacKay and producer Tim White. 

The Furnace

Set in the 1890s gold rush of Western Australia, The Furnace is an unlikely hero’s tale, navigating greed and the search for identity in a new land. 

This film illuminates the forgotten history of Australia’s ‘Ghan' cameleers, who were predominantly Muslim and Sikh men from India, Afghanistan, and Persia, who traversed the nation’s vast desert interior, forming unique bonds with local Aboriginal people. 

 To escape a harsh existence and return home, a young Afghan cameleer (Ahmed Malek) partners with a mysterious bushman (David Wenham) on the run with two 400oz Crown-marked gold bars. 
Together the unlikely pair must outwit a zealous police sergeant and his troopers in a race to reach a secret furnace - the one place where they can safely reset the bars to remove the mark of the Crown.
