@JCU ALTAR film screening: Motorkite Dreaming
ALTAR (Anthropological Laboratory for Tropical Audiovisual Research) is a group at the Cairns Institute, James Cook University, Cairns.
(https://espaces.edu.au/altar). We screen classic and contemporary ethnographic films on the big screen at the Cairns Institute lecture theatre. Open and FREE to the public.
Motorkite Dreaming (2016, 90 mins) is a story of two couples who get off the couch and undertake the adventure of their lifetime.
Director Charlie Hill-Smith said: “The idea is to screen a rollicking cross-cultural adventure, that accesses rarely seen Australia, by way of ludicrous flying machines," he said.
"In many ways it’s a Trojan horse narrative; a story that smells like an adventure, but one that takes audiences to places where they might open their eyes to a culture of mind-boggling complexity, beauty and humour.”
Wednesday 26 October at 7:30pm at the TANKS!
Tank 5, doors open at 6:30 pm
Screened in cooperation with the End Credits Film Club, Tanks Arts Centre and Cairns Regional Council.
