Is This The Real World, the feature debut of writer-director Martin McKenna, will be screened across Sydney this week, followed by Q&A sessions.

The film follows the story of Mark Blazey, a high school kid growing up in a coastal town and trapped in a relentless battle of wills with a controlling teacher, while his family is breaking apart and first love beating at his door.

It stars up-and-comer Sean Keenan (Puberty Blues, Glitch, Strangerland) alongside Matt Colwell (hip hop artist 360) in his feature film debut.

Melbourne-based McKenna helmed the project after working TV drama for nearly two decades on series such Packed to the Rafters, Neighbours, Stingers, All Saints and Corelli.

The film was produced by Point of View Films.
