Film evening: Headhunt Revisited

27 July 2018 - 6:00pm
at National Film and Sound Archive

Headhunt Revisited: With Brush, Canvas and Camera is a documentary film about history and art that crosses oceans and decades. The film follows Caroline Mytinger's unprecedented journey in 1926 to the 'Land of Headhunters' in the South Pacific to paint the rich cultural diversity of Melanesia. Over 80 years later Caroline's story inspires new generations of artists and non-artists alike about the importance of documenting culture and tradition. A special screening at the Arc Cinema at the National Film and Sound Archive will be introduced by Lynne Ainsworth, with a skype Q&A following the film with director/producer Michele Westmorland.

Tickets are $10 and available from the NFSA website.
