Event description

Description

Of all the major capital cities in Australia and perhaps even the West, Sydney takes the least care of its own heritage. Melbourne has Heide, the Carlton set and the Italians and more lately Nick Cave. However, not even educated Sydney people would recognise that the film industry began at the Filmmakers Co-op; that the Nimrod nourished stories and artists with a distinctly Australian vernacular. The question is, did Sydney at that time have a style of its own? Sedition 2019 thinks the answer is yes and it was a cynical, tough-minded city with people who banded together to make the place better. We think it’s certainly a question that should beposed?
