Heartbreak and Beauty - film premier
Bus Stop Films is premiering a new short film Heartbreak and Beauty at the Chauvel Theatre, Paddington (Sydney) on 21 February 2015.

Created with and starring 12 young people living with intellectual disability, the film follows their experiences of love, loss and hope, through poetry, visual metaphor and dance. Bus Stop’s mission is to create an inclusive film and television industry, where people of all backgrounds can contribute to Australia’s creative and economic landscape.

Heartbreak and Beauty is produced in partnership with Sydney Community College and follows a run of success for Bus Stop with their last project The Interviewer receiving international critical acclaim, winning over 30 awards. Both short films will be shown on the night.
