SYNOPSIS

Prime Ministers & Vincent Lingiari 2016 dir. Vincent Namatjira (4:47 mins) 

"A showcase of the artistic practice of Western Aranda artist Vincent Namatjira. Namatjira is a witty and politically astute portrait painter based at Iwantja Arts in Indulkana Community, APY Lands, SA. The video is based in part on Namatjira’s painting of the seven Prime Ministers of Australia in power during his lifetime. This suite of Prime Minister paintings was exhibited at QAGOMA as part of APT9 in 2018, accompanied by this video." Iwanja Arts

The Carnival of Affluence 2015 dir. Sal Cooper (4:25 mins) 

A parent leads their child through a fantastic fairground, introducing them to the elusive dream of wealth.

"A half-empty travel bag lies abandoned on a table surrounded by junk. Or so we think..." Tropfest

An Etude 2019 dir. Sal Cooper (3 mins) 

A faun walks through a forest, power lines chatter in the wind, and a horse falls from the sky. A poetic collaboration between the animation of Sal Cooper and the music of Kate Neal.

The Queen and I 2011 dir. Douglas Watkin (11:20 mins)

"The Queen and I tells the story of Douglas’ father, Edward Watkin's encounter with Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II when she visited Cairns in 1954." Scanlines

To See the Ocean for the First Time 2018 dir. Todd Fuller (4:47 mins)

"Overlooking Shelly Beach in Port Macquarie sits the iconic Harry’s Lookout. The site is known for its picturesque view and for the man whom it is named after. From 1959, until his death in 2000, Harry Thompson was the unofficial caretaker, a citizen of the year and later appointed Mayor of Shelly Beach. While on Residence with the Glasshouse Port Macquarie, Todd Fuller reimagined this iconic local story in a hand drawn animation." Todd Fuller

Unravel 2008 dir. Caroline Huf (6:59 mins)

"A stop motion animation of flotsam and jetsam from the beach, medication packets and plasticine" Caroline Huf

Touch 2012 dir. Caroline Huf (4:45 mins) 

A haptic meditation on the ebb and flow of the tide.

r 2019 dir. Ana Pollak (2:30 mins) 

"Over most of 2019 I made “r”, an abstracted hand drawn portrait film of a friend to explore feelings of world weariness." Ana Pollak

The Nightingale and the Rose 2015 dir. Del Kathryn Barton (13 mins) 

"Showcasing the hauntingly beautiful collaboration between two-time Archibald Prize winner Del Kathryn Barton and acclaimed filmmaker Brendan Fletcher, this milestone exhibition traces the compelling interpretation of Oscar Wilde’s 19th century classic through a sophisticated and nuanced artistic lens." Australian Centre for the Moving Image, Melbourne
