Our regular spotlight on recent highlights from the Australian independent filmmaking scene.

Rey (Luke Saliba) always wanted to be a professional wrestler. After years stuck in a dead-end job in Geelong, he finally quits and with the help of his big-hearted best mate Wade (John Tui), Rey’s life slowly starts to take shape.

But when he meets Holly (Tessa de Josselin), he lacks the courage to ask her out. He needs to find his ‘mana’ (confidence and power, in Polynesian culture).

That’s when ex-wrestler Terry (Gary Sweet) steps in to help Rey become the ‘paper champion’ he was meant to be.

Paper Champions revels in the strengths of its diverse cast, including lots of locals who weren’t professional actors’ – Time Out
