Director Paul Ireland and actor John Brumpton will be attending the screening on 18 Feb.

All of life passes through the doors of a Melbourne pawnbroker in Pawno, a gritty, award-winning slice of the real Australia from actor turned director Paul Ireland. World-weary owner Les (John Brumpton) has seen it all and keeps everything strictly business. Shy assistant Danny (Damian Hill) has a gentler nature and a soft spot for a girl from the local bookshop. Over the course of a day, we spend time in the multicultural suburb of Footscray, meet the customers at Les’ last chance saloon and have our expectations challenged in a multi-layered ensemble with a cracking soundtrack.
