Event description

Description

Half of all marine life has been lost in the last 40 years. If we don’t make drastic changes, by 2050 there will be more plastic in the sea than fish.

Blue is a film about how the oceans are broken, and what can be done to fix them. Featuring passionate advocates for ocean preservation, the film tackles themes of habitat destruction, species loss and pollution. Filmed with stunning cinematography in the seas surrounding Australia, Indonesia, the Philippines and the US, Blue looks at how the very nature of the ocean is being altered.

Our ocean has been the guardian of life on earth. Now it is our turn to be guardians for the ocean.

LIVE MUSIC - ON PORTICO/LAWN BEFORE FILM with Davy Simony
Davy Simony is a folk-roots singer-songwriter originally from Kuranda, a village in the rainforest of Far North Queensland. Now based in Melbourne, Davy has been making waves in the local scene for the past few years, as well as touring nationally and internationally. With influences that span from Angus & Julia Stone to Fat Freddy's Drop, Simony’s work is defined by his grounded and heartfelt style of songwriting. His live performances are not to be missed. Boasting the powerful energy of a ‘one-man-band,’ Simony takes to guitar, foot percussion and live loops.

LIVE MUSIC - IN HALL BEFORE FILM with Kym Staton


Kym Staton has been serenading audiences in cafes, bars, pubs and other small venues as a singer/songwriter since 2012 and has performed more than three-hundred gigs at intimate venues around Sydney and Melbourne - including Bar 303, The Factory Theatre, The Newsagency, Newtown Social Club, Dome Bar, The White Horse, Broadway Lounge, Govindas Movie Room, Loop Project Space and countless other intimate venues, honing his skills and stagecraft.

He has a unique sound both exotic and earthy, and a wide and eclectic repertoire of blues, jazz and folk covers, weird old songs and unusual originals. His rare rock tenor voice goes from subtle to soaring in a heartbeat, and the exquisite interplay of his captivating vocals and a deft touch on his telecaster and acoustic guitar must to be heard to be believed.

Check out some of Kym's music on his youtube channel:
