Jury Statement (Christos Tsiolkas, Anna McLeish, Hayley Weston):
Monaco, economically, and purely through the visual and sonic potential of cinema, tells a resonant and affecting story of suburban working-class life. On the evidence of this film, Easteal is a born filmmaker and one who understands that realism, when executed with integrity and care, can be truly poetic.There is a quiet excitement that comes from viewing a work that reveals such assured filmmaking talent. One cannot wait to see what this director will do next. But regardless of the future, Monaco is in itself a terrific achievement and already indicates that Easteal is one of the finest directors working in this country.
