Three boys are on a perilous course toward ‘juvey’ until they meet up with a free-wheeling jackaroo and hit the road with his legendary dog jumping team. This inspiring coming of age story follows the boys as they strive to turn their lives around – and the dogs that help tame their wild ways.

Winner of the Audience Award at this year’s Sydney Film Festival, BACKTRACK BOYS is a journey into young adulthood with a group of boys looking for leadership and love. They find it in Backtrack founder Bernie Shakeshaft whose unconditional support for the members of his group brings about real change in the way they see themselves.

A powerful new Australian documentary with an important message, the film received a standing ovation at its premiere in June. Heart of Gold is delighted to welcome filmmaker Catherine Scott and star of the film Bernie Shakeshaft as special guests of the festival.

Be sure to stick around for a Q&A with Catherine and Bernie in the cinema after the film!
