Cast members of ABC’s upcoming drama Cleverman attended the international premiere at the Berlin Film Festival overnight.
In attendance were Deborah Mailman, Frances O’Connor, Hunter Page-Lochard, Tasma Walton, Stef Dawson as well as Wayne Blair (director), Ryan Griffen (concept originator) plus Rosemary Blight and Angela Littlejohn (producers).
Two episodes were screened to packed houses.
The series is set in the near future, where a species from ancient mythology must live amongst humans and battle for survival in a world that wants to silence, exploit and destroy them. At the heart of the story are two estranged brothers, Koen (Hunter Page-Lochard) and Waruu West (Rob Collins), who are forced together to fight against terrifying enemies, both human and not of this world. But can Koen, a man bestowed with a powerful gift and destined to become the Cleverman, learn to harness his power before everything around him crumbles?
By turns smart, sexy, thought-provoking and startlingly original, Cleverman combines compelling character-driven storytelling with powerful themes and thrilling action, to appeal to all audiences.
ABC has also released a sneak-peek scene featuring Hunter Page-Lochard and Jack Charles.
