SOUNDBITE (English) Aisling Franciosi, Actress:"It's set in 1825 in Tasmania and Claire is an ex-convict. She was probably sent there for petty crime and has finished her sentence but Hawkins, her quote unquote master, I guess, in a certain sense, the Leftenant. He doesn't want to let her go. And she needs her ticket of leave to be able to go off and live her family with her husband and baby and after her husband Aidan confronts him about giving him her freedom, things escalate terribly and she is pushed to go after Hawkins and seek out revenge."IFC FILMS  3. Trailer clip- "The Nightingale"ASSOCIATED PRESSNew York, 7 August 20194. SOUNDBITE (English) Aisling Franciosi, Actress:"I think there are so many themes that are so relevant today, unfortunately. I think fear of the other is one of the ones that really stands for me for obvious reasons in our current political climate. You know I think this film tries to really how that we are far more similar than we are different. At the core of it we're all just human beings and if we could just focus on, if not love than at least basic human respect, hopefully we can end this vicious cycle of perpetuating violence. I think violence against the feminine is unfortunately something that is clearly still a relevant topic today, at least we're, you know, having more forward thinking conversations about it and we're actually talking about the issue but that's definitely a theme _ a very sensitive theme that's int eh film. And just, you know, violence against indigenous populations, you know? This story about the Tasmanian Aboriginals is one that for the first time is on screen like this and it's so important to get stories like this out there and just to show the brutality colonialism and oppression of peoples generally and again, unfortunately still there are places where that's really happening."===========================================================Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com(ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
