About

Join us to celebrate the work of two of the most vital filmmakers in Australia in a world-first retrospective.

Over 30 years Rolf de Heer has created a constantly surprising, hugely varied body of work that frequently sides with ‘outsiders’. This selection focuses on those films made in remote rural Australia that trace an increasingly deep connection with Indigenous Australia.

Documentary artist Molly Reynolds began working with de Heer on 2005’s Ten Canoes, a film brilliantly devised with the Yolngu people of Ramingining in Arnhem Land. Finding rich layers of meaning in Ramingining and its favourite son David Gulpilil, Reynolds and de Heer went on to produce a suite of three outstanding works – each one standing alone, yet also creating a fascinating sequence.

Film lovers will revel in this chance to discover or revisit these extraordinary films and to hear the makers discuss their work
