You Beauties: New Australian Cinema – film season at the BFI
February 3 @ 8:00 am - February 27 @ 5:00 pm
The BFI presents a special film season from Australia’s national museum of screen culture ACMI – formerly Australian Centre for the Moving Image: a concise selection of features, shorts and moving-image works that showcase new independent Australian cinema in all its diversity: friendly, strange, blak, queer, bad, mad and beautiful.
This programme focuses on the most exciting, innovative and incisive voices: Goran Stolevski’s feminist folklore, Soda Jerk’s mythological mash-up, Jub Clerc’s sweet, dusty coming-of-age-on-the-road movie, and James Vaughan’s deadpan grilling of white privilege. Not to forget Back to Back Theatre’s provocation into AI’s intrusion on disability and moving-image works by First Nations artists canvassing memory, inheritance, and invasion.
These creators are all names to watch. Features curated by Ghita Loebenstein (formerly Head of Cinemas), shorts by Treise Armstrong (Film Programmes), and blak art on film programme by Kate Ten Buuren (Taungurung) (Curator) at ACMI.
