SUNDAY is a truly independent self-financed feature film set in Christchurch, New Zealand one year after the devastating earthquakes. While it is not an earthquake film, it is a story like the city of Christchurch: one of past devastation, beauty and a chance at rebuilding bigger and better than before.
Charlie (Dustin Clare) and Eve (Camille Keenan) are about to have a baby, but they are no longer together. After years of history and months of separation, they have 24 hours to find out whether they have a future together.
Sunday is a relationship drama, a classic tale of two people whose lives intertwine with the city they inhabit.
In a world first, SUNDAY opened in New Zealand on Sunday December 7th 2014 simultaneously across 35+ Cinemas, Television (Rialto Channel), the Internet VOD (iTunes/Vimeo/ReelHouse), DVD and Airlines (Jetstar + Air NZ) creating the largest Multiplatform Release of a film ever. This carefully designed release was a direct response to piracy, and enabled everyone to have the choice as to when, where and how they wanted to watch the film. No restrictions.
In Australia SUNDAY will be released on May 2nd 2015 across Cinemas, Online streaming SVOD (Stan), Online VOD (iTunes, Google Play, Dendy Direct, Xbox, Sony, Fetch TV, Vimeo on Demand & ReelHouse), DVD, and on television later in the year on the GEM network. This will be the first time a film has been released in Australia on a streaming service (Stan) at the same time as Cinemas, VOD & DVD.
$1 from every ticket sold at the Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland Premiere Screenings will go to the Christchurch branch of the White Ribbon Trust, while 10% of the opening weekend box office in Australia will be donated to White Ribbon Australia. 10% of all profits from the film will be donated back to Gap Filler so they can continue to help encourage the Christchurch community grow and heal through creative endeavours.
