General Hercules

General Hercules

25th TiDF: International Premiere

As the incumbent Mayor of Kalgoorlie starts his campaign for a second term, independent prospector John Katahanas, decides to run against him on a ticket of anti-corruption. What starts as a David v Goliath political battle unravels into a portrait of a man, a town and a country, sent mad by the timeless cycles of exploitation, racism, and greed.
