Leading British artist and filmmaker John Akomfrah brings two new major film installations to Perth.

Fusing archive material, original footage and readings from classical sources, Vertigo Sea is an immersive and captivating meditation on our relationship with the ocean.

Presented as a poetic period drama, Auto Da Fé highlights the connections between religion, persecution and migration over four centuries.
