Film Reports from the Deep South
Chris Henschke and Donna Kendrigan
Thursday, 29 Oct. 2009
Tonight, we will experience two very different aspects of Australian culture:
Art meets science in the works of Chris Henschke
and Donna Kendrigan, Australian artists from
Melbourne. Donna recreated the first
metereological cloud formation experiment in
front of her camera. Chris inserted a lightbulb
into the beams of a particle accelerator during
his residency at the Australian Synchrotron, and
documented the effects. The results of these
experiments will be presented at the screening.
However, Donna and Chris also have a very
different interest. This will be shown in the
second part of the night.
"Deep South" is a montage of shorts and features
from the southern end of the Australian
continent. A selection of degenerate yet
distinctive moments in Australian film starting
from 1906, paints an unashamedly unglamorous and
unfamiliar portrait of Australia for the European
audience - a new anti-touristic angle on
Australia as opposed to the usual image of a fun
and friendly holiday destination.
The artists are personally introducing the films
and will be present for Q&A after the screening.
