“A raw, dynamic rush of a film” -- Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
One of the great queer films out of Australia alongside THE ADVENTURES OF PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT and THE SUM OF US, the Cannes ‘98 Director’s Fortnight selection HEAD ON gained notoriety upon its release for its sexual explicitness.
Ari is a nineteen year-old rebel at odds with his Greek parents over their constrictive values. Confused with his own part in the complex universe, Ari becomes obsessed with extremes. Wired and defiant, mixing pain and joy as one, Ari’s destiny is aimed head-on into one high-velocity night of dancing, sex and drugs.
