On the film’s location, producer Kristina Ceyton (The Babadook) stated:
“The decision to shoot in South Australia was based on various factors…First and foremost, we had such a fantastic experience on The Babadook (2014), with great support from the SAFC [South Australian Film Corporation]. We had access to outstanding facilities, including the Adelaide Studios, and the crew and industry partnerships formed in SA [South Australia] have endured…For Cargo (2017), the landscapes are so central to the power of this story and the directors’ vision, we all felt very strongly that South Australia’s diverse and stunning outback locations would add beautifully to the film’s screen impact…We are really excited about bringing our next, bigger production to the State.” (Source)
