Tracey Moffatt | Australia | 1993 | 12A
The first film to be made by a female, indigenous filmmaker in Australia, Tracey Moffatt’s ‘BeDevil’ is a beguiling mix of folklore and personal experience from within Australia’s aboriginal community. Moffatt’s singular vision weaves together stories of invisible trains, the ghosts of American GIs and pot-luck picnics, set against a backdrop of colonisation and discrimination. A celebration of storytelling that explores the mysterious place of the past within the present.
This screening was introduced with stories from Australian storyteller Judy Paterson.
