Animal Farm - CMAG Friday 16 August 2:30pm - 4:00pm

Directed by Joris Ivens and produced in 1948 by the Waterside Workers' Federation (WWF) Film Unit, this clandestinely made film shot around Sydney Harbour gained an international reputation. It documents the refusal of seamen and waterside workers to man and load Dutch ships and arms to be used against the Indonesian Republic in their fight for independence from the Netherlands, which was trying to re-impose pre-war colonial rule. It culminates in the dramatic halting of a Dutch ship in mid-harbour. This activist documentary actually contributed to the events it depicted. All who worked on the film became "adversely known" to the security services. Plus THE HUNGRY MILES (1955), a passionate survey of the struggles and achievements of the WWF during and after the Depression of the 1930s.          

Venue:  Canberra Museum and Gallery (CMAG)

Date: Friday, 16 August, 2:30pm to 4:00pm.
