The ANU Film Group is bringing acclaimed documentary A FLICKERING TRUTH to town for its Canberra premiere screening and we’ve got tickets to give away for you to attend this event!

Coming straight from the Sydney and Melbourne International Film Festivals, A FLICKERING TRUTH tells the fascinating tale of three men and their quest to save the 8,000 hours worth of film that make up Afghanistan’s film archive from the ravages of 100 years of war. Beneath the dust and the cloak of time, they discover a hidden record of their country’s colourful and diverse past – a far cry from the war-torn nation it is today.

Directed by New Zealand documentarian Pietra Brettkelly, the powerful film was also recently selected as New Zealand’s entry in the Best Foreign Language Film category at next year’s Oscars.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion on film preservation and film culture featuring notable guests from the local film industry, including Andrew Pike, Ray Edmondson, and Alice Taylor.
