Stephen Page’s new feature is currently in production and is produced by the creative team behind The Turning.

LevelK has acquired world rights to Spear.

Directed by Stephen Page, Spear is produced by Robert Connelly and John Harvey and follows a young Aboriginal man who sets off on a journey of initiation to understand what it means to be a man in a modern day world.

Connolly commented: “We are all extremely excited to be working with LevelK again on the first feature to come out of the creative ensemble brought together for The Turning, which was successfully launched by LevelK at the Berlinale last year.”

Spear is currently in production and has investment through The Hive initiative from Adelaide Film Festival, Screen Australia, The ABC and the Australia Council along with partners Bangarra Dance Theatre, Definition Films, Soundfirm and Carriageworks.

It will premiere in October at the Adelaide Film Festival.
