Acclaimed observational documentary HOTEL COOLGARDIE from Western Australian director, Pete Gleeson and Western Australian producers Melissa Hayward and Kate Neylon is now available on demand on digital platforms including iTunes, Vimeo, Amazon and YouTube Movies.

Following a World Premiere at Hot Docs Canadian International Film Festival, Australian Premiere at Sydney Film Festival, a string of official selections at 19 prestigious film festivals across the globe including Slamdance, American Documentary Film Festival, CinéfestOZ and SanFran DocFest, a successful theatrical release across Australia and a 92% certified fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, HOTEL COOLGARDIE is finally available on demand.

HOTEL COOLGARDIE garnered national headlines for its depiction of the disturbing experience of two Finnish backpackers who found themselves the latest batch of “fresh meat” sent to work as barmaids at the only pub in a remote Australian mining town.

“all the tension of any horror movie – an unforgettable piece of work”
“fly-on-the-wall documentary filmmaking at its best”
“a completely absorbing portrait of a place stuck tragically in the past”
“takes a hard, unflinching look at fragile masculinity”
“one of the most captivating Australian documentaries in recent memory”
“memorable characters who linger long after the credits roll”
“completely unexpected, completely stunning”
“gripping…holds you right to the very end”
“a comedy, drama and horror film all rolled into one”
“one of the most important and shocking films to come out of Australia in ages”
“jaw-dropping, stomach-churning and thought-provoking – literally always at the same time”
“a jaw-dropping documentary which lingered for many days after having seen it”

Confronted with a culture of alienation and impunity, in limbo between being desired and disdained, their working holiday rapidly deteriorates into a bizarre test of endurance as they discover that to meet expectations they’ll need to do more than just pour drinks. Set deep in Australia’s harsh interior, HOTEL COOLGARDIE is a sometimes amusing, sometimes appalling, surprisingly moving portrait of small town insularity, fragile masculinity and the plight of the outsider forced to adapt or face the consequences.
