ACMI Cinema 2

A MIAF Sunday afternoon favourite. The unique properties of animation make it a powerful tool in the hands of a documentary maker. It can recreate what was missed by the camera, it can convey things that no camera can capture, it can soften a harsh message and it can bring layers of emotion and meaning to documentary that a camera would struggle to capture. Each year, we select new and old films with these criteria in mind.

 

The Moon and the Son
John Canemaker, USA, 2005 > 30’00
Academy Award winner narrated by John Tutturo. A complex, multi layered film exploring the love and rage the filmmaker still feels for his father, a New York shopkeeper and reluctant arsonist.

* 2006 Academy Award Winner

An honest, open personal account of life as an 'exotic dancer'.
Sukki’s Story
Thomas Leung, Australia, 2005 > 5’00

John And Michael
