~

'The Arrival of a Phoenix' is an utterly beautiful experimental film that expresses the depths of what it means to be human. Director Saidin Salkic experienced the genocide in Bosnia in the 1990s first hand, losing his father, before then reconstructing his life in Australia in the last 15 years. This film, a portrait of himself and his daughter, is a sublime, transcendental work.

'Silence’s Crescendo' is the most recent film from Bosnian-Australian avant-gardist Saidin Salkic. It is an extraordinary and unique horror film, playing with many tropes of the genre, but in a low-budget and intense way. Salkic uses the experimental film genre (repetition and variation of images and sounds) to create a pulsating, nightmarish film.

Saidin Salkic was born in Srebrenica, Bosnia. Having survived the genocide he migrated to Australia in 2001. He is a prolific artist, with film, music, painting and poetry. The Arrival of a Phoenix and Silence’s Crescendo are his two most recent films.

Tickets: $14, and $10 concession
