Filmed in Sydney and the Southern Highlands, ‘The Appleton Ladies’ Potato Race’ explores the issue of gender equality from the quirky perspective of an event at a country show.
When Penny Anderson (Claire van der Boom) returns to her childhood home in time for The Appleton Show and ‘world famous potato race’, she is outraged to find out the men’s first prize is $2,000 while the women’s winner gets only $200.
Determined to right this wrong she starts a campaign in the sleepy town of Appleton that divides family and friends.
The movie debuted on Channel 10 on the 26th of July and is available to stream on Paramount+ right now. Congratulations to Alec.S and Amanda.P, who worked on this one, it looks great.
