If you’re not planning a trip to Australia this fall, the MEG proposes every Sunday to travel to unknown lands through a series of films dedicated to Aboriginal culture. In line with the exhibition “L’effet boomerang. Les Arts aborigenes d’Australie”, the MEG’s auditorium will get a cosy cinema make-over (mattresses, deckchairs, cushions) and takes you to the Australian outback.
A total of eight major works from the 1950s to the present, together in partnership with the Black Movie festival, promises to awaken your consciousness through a rich and varied synthesis. Amongst the lovely selection of Cine-dimanche (Sunday-movie), you will find: Charlie’s Country with the charismatic David Gulpilil (award for best actor at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival), Bran Nue Dae, the offbeat adaptation of the hit musical, and for the great classics, Jedda and Walkabout. The underlying theme: the cultural heritage of a people in peril. Alienated culture, stolen generations, croyances ou errances initiatiques… Australian and international film addresses the aboriginal condition from many angles. An exotic program under a “bush” background and intertwined destinies bathed in light and deep truth.
