Our Outdoor Screen in the Plaza presents a unique, specialised program that celebrates artists, filmmakers, animators, sporting heroes and our community.
Learn more about the content we show directly from the minds of the curators. This week Zak Hepburn talks to us about his curated film series titled ‘Movement, Rhythm, Space.’

 

A.D. 1363, the end of chivalry, Jake Mahaffy

Movement, Rhythm, Space 

Curated by Zachery Hepburn, ABC film critic and General Manager of the Astor Theatre 

These four works showcase a trip into the realm of space and time investigating a journey into the unknown. Works such as Jake Mahaffy’s A.D. 1363, the end of chivalry creates a sense of evocative space. Sofia Bender’s Behind Barres explores the realms of dance whilst Sweet Dreaming by Katherine Escane takes a surreal journey into a musical world. The rhythm of Mildlife, transports us into The Magnificent Moon. Together these works aim to take the viewer into a place where conventional story telling falls away to be overtaken by the visual and visceral.
