It has been twenty-fives years since Paul Simon traveled into a volatile South Africa, where racial segregation and white supremacy reigned, to create his radically sweet, Grammy Award winning album Graceland.
Under African Skies – a documentary, following Simon’s return to Africa, where he is reunited with Graceland musicians and his greatest critic Artists Against Apartheid founder Dali Tambo, is the first of 15 Australian premieres during the Human Rights Arts and Film Festival.
The festival, which ‘aims to advance and encourage education and debate among the broader community’, will be showcasing a range of Australian and International artists.
Film highlights include: award-winning documentary At Night they Dance, Beer is Cheaper Than Therapy, Fantome Island, and the animation Wrinkles.
There will also be art exhibitions, forums, dance and music sessions! The HRAFF is an enormous, celebratory event spanning twelve days in three locations. Be sure to explore the program.
WHEN: Tuesday 15 May – Sunday 27 May
WHERE: The Forum Theatre, ACMI, Abbotsford Convent
