It's been ten months in the making but
kicking off this Wendeesday nite 9th April
A series of screenings of BRILLIANT FILMS that you haven't seen
or maybe even heard of -
upstairs in the Alpha House Gallery
7-11pm (movie runs 7.30-10)
First on the wall will be Hungarian director Béla Tarr's 2001 film "Werckmeister Harmonies".
From Darrin Baker, co-programmer -
Many consider Werkmeister Harmonies to be Bela Tarr's greatest achievement to date, and I have to agree.
A carnvial arrives in a freezing Hungarian town, and brings with it a malevolent form of hatred and mistrust, that spreads throughout the town's inhabitants.
This amazingly shot and directed film was never released in Australia, despite winning many prestigious awards. And aside from a screening at the Sydney Film Festival on the year of its release, this will probably be Werkmeister Harmonies' first public screening in Australia!
Slightly more information (or the same info, slightly different) can be found here -
It's essential that you bring your own bean bag or cushion to sit on
and a gold coin will get you in.
Handing over yet another gold one could get you soup or mulled wine or pop corn... or just a smile - try your luck on da nite.
Alpha House is close to King St, Newtown.St Peters is the closest train station and Newtown station is about an 8 minute walk away.
Can't wait for it to be 7pm!
* Feel free to bring friends and to forward the invitation on - especially to people who make films.
