Join us for a night short films and live music on Friday 26 March. The 2021 Tuggeranong program is themed Culture and Identity.

​Here’s a summary of the Tuggeranong program:

There are Voices out There – Music video local musician, Jess Green directed by Caroline Stacey and shot by Martin Ollman, vibrant and cool.

Home: a Meditation on Belonging – an achingly poignant reflection on leaving everything behind and starting again

Migrant – from the Schools/U18 category a very thoughtful look at loneliness and immigration

Quiet – an animation from Norway which depicts the pressure on children of growing up around alcoholic and depressed parents, well made and thought provoking

Identity = Us And Them: Formula For The End – A very short and innovative film which looks at nationalism, tribalism and identity

Malinchista – A first nations animation from Mexico with themes of feminist and linguistic cultural meanings

Bumper – one of the best international films this year, Bumper is a French comedy featuring a feisty grandmother who wants to get her licence

Getting out of line online – Local comedian, Chris Ryan has created an animated response to her time under a covid lockdown

My Path – a local story about going your own way

Adrian Sutherland – Politician Man – A music video from a Canadian first nations man, …..as the name implies it is a song condemning political posturing

Whiteface – Another very strong film, this one is partly clever theatrical dialogue, partly interpretive dance exploring attitudes to indigenous culture in Canada

Entangled – some light comic relief from an emerging Canberran filmmaker, what happens when you put your headphones away at night.

Mother Tongue – A young Chinese girl re connects with her parents language when she has to take her little sister to class.

244 years later – a 2 minute film, poetic and well made which looks at the history of the US in the context of BLM

The Size of Things – A cinematic, award winning, Columbian film, in a magic realist style, a young boy of poor family, finds a chair in the forest. A treat to end the evening.
