Event Details

A free screening of Moira Fahy's remarkable film Afterburn, which traces the emotional experiences of three families as they rebuild their lives in the wake of the Black Saturday bushfires.  The screening will be followed by a roundtable interdisciplinary discussion, featuring Moira Fahy (filmmaker and scriptwriter), Professor Tom Griffiths (Fire historian and William Keith Hancock Professor of History, ANU), Dr Alex Lambert (Lecturer in Communication and Media, Monash University), and Ruth Wraith (psychotherapist, with particular expertise in the aftermath of disasters).  The discussion will be chaired by Grace Moore (Senior Research Fellow, Centre for the History of Emotions) and will be followed by drinks and finger food.  

The screening is one of several events organized to coincide with the From The Fire exhibition at The Dax Centre  (27 May-30 October, 2015) and is a partnership event between The DC and the ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions, with additional sponsorship from the School of Culture and Communication, the University of Melbourne.  

Registration is essential All welcome!  Copies of the film will be available for sale on the night (cash only, please).

From The Fire brings together a selection of artworks made by people who experienced the Black Saturday bushfires in 2009. This exhibition captures the destruction of the fires and the emotional aftermath, with a focus on the impact of trauma.
