uproar : a heartwarming comedy : five double passes

In UPROAR, this is a moving and heartwarming story about connection and finding your place in the world.

It is the story of 17-year-old Josh Waaka (played by Julian Dennison). Set in Dunedin in 1981, a rugby-obsessed country is divided over the arrival of the South African Springboks team, sparking nationwide protests.

Under pressure from home and school to conform, Josh, who has never felt like he fits in anywhere, is inspired by the protests and by a newfound passion for performing to find his own voice.

A sequence of events sees Josh embrace his community and his Māori heritage, taking him and his family on a journey towards healing.

UPROAR opens nationally on November 30, 2023.  Sydney Arts Guide has ten double passes to give away to the preview screening of UPROAR at Event Cinemas, Parramatta on 26 November 2026 at 6.30pm.

Please make sure to note that this is a Parramatta screening not a inner city screening. with UPROAR PROMOTION in the subject heading. Winners will be advised by email and the winner’s names will be on the guest list at the door. Good luck!
