Charlie’s Country
18th March
NOTE DATE
Our March film (note the date!) is Charlie’s Country- an Aboriginal film which has similarities and the same lead actor as one of my favourite films Ten Canoes which we showed a couple of years ago. Charlie takes off, to live the old way triggering a chain of events that returns him to his community somewhat the wiser.

The Missing Picture

Rithy Panh uses clay figures, archival footage, and his narration to recreate the atrocities Cambodia’s Khmer Rouge committed between 1975 and 1979. A rare opportunity to see this breathtaking film on the big screen.
