Sorry, there are no upcoming session times for Talking About Trees at Dendy Canberra
Saturday, August 3 at 1.45PM
Most young people in Sudan have never been to the cinema. Thirty years of government repression has decimated the Sudanese film industry, but four veteran directors are fighting back.
The lifelong friends begin by travelling to communities with their ancient projector, until they set their sights on reopening the “Revolution Cinema.” It’s not an easy task, and to keep up morale up they entertain each other by acting out scenes from classic films and their own screenplays. A rare cinematic gem that reminds us of the power of cinema, friendship and laughter in the face of adversity.

Beauty, creativity, genius: the Renaissance Florence of Lorenzo de' Medici was a powerhouse of art and culture. Among countless shops and government buildings, there was endless beauty coexisting with the dark side of the city, made up of power struggles, plots, intrigues and brutal violence.
