The Family Law Series 2 Premiere with Benjamin Law
Cinema Nova, Carlton / 7:30pm
Join author/screenwriter Benjamin Law and actor Fiona Choi when they appear live at Cinema Nova to discuss THE FAMILY LAW, following the big-screen premiere of the first two episodes of the anticipated new season.
Returning to SBS on June 15, the new series of Australian comic drama THE FAMILY LAW finds that Jenny and Danny Law have amicably parted ways, and a wiser, more-mature Benjamin now understands that sometimes, parents just work better apart. With the holidays over the Laws are turning a new leaf – or, as Jenny calls it, a “new flap”. Danny – having sold Happy Dragon – opens ‘Asian Alley’, an Asian grocery store and his first entrée into retail, while Jenny embarks on a quest of self-discovery. Resuming his role as family fixer, Benjamin helps his mother “find herself”, his father prove himself, and tries to stop his family from going off the rails – all while juggling his star-making turn in Sacred Heart High’s ground-breaking school production of a feel-good hit about infanticide, Medea.

Metal Against Violence Fundraiser
The Evelyn, Fitzroy / 8pm
More often than not people associate the metal scene with violence due to image, the nature of the concerts, the crude horror style lyrics and the actual sound of metal bands. However the scene is full of kind, big-hearted people who care about each other and act as a family to support each other in times of need.
This fundraising event will show exactly how great the metal community is, raising money for victims of domestic violence and to raise awareness of domestic violence within our society. This is an all too common problem that needs to be addresses. So lets rock out and help prevent abusive behaviour. All profits from this event will be donated to The White Ribbon foundation to help victims of violence.
