Royal Historical Society of Victoria - February Film & Lecture

JOIN RENOWNED DOCUMENTARY FILMMAKER MALCOLM MCKINNON FOR A VIEWING OF ‘THE FARMER’S CINEMATHEQUE

 

  • Film provides an intimate and revealing look at farming and our attachment to country and tradition
  • The Farmer’s Cinematheque received a commendation in the Victorian Community History Awards

  
Join documentary filmmaker Malcolm McKinnon for a viewing of ‘The Farmer’s Cinematheque’ at the Royal Historical Society of Victoria (RHSV). An open Q&A session with the Mr. McKinnon will take place immediately following the film. 
  
This intimate film is an interpretation of a remarkable cinematic archive created by a family of farmers at Rupanyup, in the Victorian Wimmera. The Teasdale family began making films of their farm and their community in the 1930’s and have continued to document their local history ever since. 
  
The film, much of it in beautiful 1950s and ‘60s Kodachrome colour, demonstrates how communities sustain their culture and heritage through storytelling. ‘The Farmer’s Cinematheque’ celebrates the power of memory, the nature of our attachment to country and the ways in which communities strive to balance change and tradition.
