Mark Blazey is a high school kid who’s going to stay young…even if it kills him. Growing up in an Australian coastal town, Mark locks into a relentless battle of wills with a controlling teacher, while his family is breaking apart, and first love is beating at his door. Is This The Real World is the independently made first feature from Melbourne based Writer/Director Martin McKenna. Featuring a smouldering performance by emerging star Sean Keenan (Puberty Blues, Glitch), Martin McKenna’s debut feature is a slow burn journey into the mind of a 17 year old, and a piercingly real portrait of a family on the edge. FilmInk Presents two special Q&A events of Is This The Real World, with director/writer, Martin McKenna, and actor, Sean Keenan, in Sydney (which will be moderated by FilmInk editor, Erin Free), and Martin McKenna, and actor, Matt Colwell (alias hip hop star, 360) in Melbourne.
