APT10 Cinema: Australian Next Wave
04 Dec 2021 – 25 Apr 2022
| GOMA | Cinema A
‘Australian Next Wave’ presents a selection of Australian debut feature films and documentaries made since 2017, reflecting on works by artists who are at the vanguard of local independent filmmaking.
Diverse in tone and subject matter, the films range from ramshackle comedies and unflinching portraits of suburbia’s dark underbelly to period dramas re-examining our nation’s unspoken histories. They present locations as disparate as the sands of Christmas Island, the garish opulence of Sydney harbour mansions, and the harsh deserts of the Northern Territory. The program explores films by some of Australia's most exciting emerging filmmakers and considers how they are responding to the ever-changing local cinematic landscape.
'Australian Next Wave' also showcases a curated collection of experimental moving image artworks created for Prototype, an innovative digital platform established by curator and scholar Lauren Carroll Harris in 2019.
