Description

Spend an evening in conversation with legendary film director Bruce Beresford (Breaker Morant, Ladies In Black, Driving Miss Daisy) as he discusses his extraordinary career. The only Australian director to win an Academy Award for Best Picture, hear Bruce discuss his 50 year creative journey from Australia to Hollywood and beyond.

Bruce Beresford will introduce the screening of Mao's Last Dancer, the inspiring true story of Li Cunxin and his extraordinary journey from a poor upbringing in China to international stardom as a world-class ballet dancer.

Also screening on Saturday at 4pm is new Australian feature, The Merger. Set against the backdrop of a small rural town, The Merger is a comedy that tells the story of a struggling football club that recruits refugees to fill its playing roster. A hilarious and heartfelt story, The Merger is based on comedian Damian Callinan's critically acclaimed one man show of the same name.

Introduced by the writer and star of the film, Damian Callinan, with post screening Q + A. Tickets not required.
