'Sweet Country' art exhibition
Four of Australia’s most notable photographers have created a series of artistic photography from the award-winning film 'Sweet Country'
Monday 29 January - Sunday 25 February (open 24 hours, 7 days)
Film Sweet Country is a stunning cinematic vision and soundscape set in the desert of the magnificent MacDonnell Ranges around Alice Springs in central Australia. Directed by Warwick Thornton, recipient of the Camera d’Or at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival for his debut feature Samson and Delilah, and starring Sam Neill, Bryan Brown, Ewen Leslie, Thomas M. Wright, Natassia Gorey-Furber, Anni Finsterer, Matt Day and introducing Hamilton Morris, Gibson John, Tremayne Doolan and Trevon Doolan.
In this fascinating public art initiative, the 'Sweet Country' art exhibition showcases the striking visuals of 16 large-scale photographs taken behind the scenes during the making of Sweet Country. Michael Corridore, Tamara Dean, Mark Rogers, and Warwick Baker, travelled to Alice Springs, capturing portraits of the cast and locations as the film was made, often working with limited time due to the constraints of the movie’s tight schedule. The project represents a groundbreaking partnership between BUNYA Productions and PHOTOPLAY, supported by the Screen Australia Indigenous Department and produced by aMBUSH Gallery.
