Co-presented by Darwin Fringe Festival!
Three Australian ghost stories are recounted in this anthology film by internationally acclaimed artist Tracey Moffatt, currently representing Australia at the 2017 Venice Biennale. beDevil was not only Moffat’s debut feature, but also the first feature film directed by an Australian Aboriginal woman.
NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The screening of beDevil recognises Tracey Moffatt as one of Australia’s most important artists, currently exhibiting at the 2017 Venice Biennale. Moffatt broke ground as the first Aboriginal woman to direct a feature film and paved the way for a whole generation. beDevil is followed by a screening of Jasper Jones, directed by Arrernte woman Rachel Perkins, who also directed Bran Nue Dae.
We are excited to welcome award-winning Australian cinematographer Geoff Burton (Storm Boy, The Year My Voice Broke, Lucky Miles) as a special guest to the cinema for this event. Geoff Burton was cinemaographer for beDevil and we look forward to his insider's insight on this landmark film.
