Synopsis: 

Inequality, injustice and the demands of the world we live in cause stress and depression for many people. Some of them, however, explode. This is a movie about those people. Vulnerable in the face of a reality that shifts and suddenly turns unpredictable, the characters of Wild Tales cross the thin line that divides civilization and barbarism. A lover's betrayal, a return to the repressed past and the violence woven into everyday encounters drive the characters to madness as they cede to the undeniable pleasure of losing control.

Inspired by a true story, LIFE charts the friendship that developed between Magnum photographer Dennis Stock and actor James Dean when Stock was commissioned to photograph the actor for Life magazine in 1955.

Stock was 26, old before his time, and already tied down to family life. Into his buttoned-down world came fledgling star James Dean, a free spirit who would change popular culture from suits to jeans and from matinee idols to teenage heartthrobs. The assignment, which took the pair on a road trip around the US, would change Stock’s life and provide the world with some of the most iconic images of the age.

Genre: Documentary
Cast: Yuwali Nixon, Thelma Judson, Grant Judson.
Director: Bentley Dean and Martin Butler

Synopsis: 

While the British and Australian governments were trying to test space rockets, members of the nomadic Indigenous population in the Great Sandy Desert, south of Broome (Western Australia) were still living off the land, surviving in extreme conditions.

The group of 20 Martu people were unaware that there was a modern society beyond the 141,000 square miles of desert they called home. They were still living a traditional life ignorant of the fact that their country had been colonised for nearly 200 hundred years.

In 1964, two officers from the Weapons Research Establishment were clearing a barren dump zone where a series of rocket tests were to take place when they came across the area’s Indigenous owners.

In this documentary, Yuwali, who was 17 at the time, recalls the Martu’s startling first contact and eventual removal from their homeland. Now 62, she describes with hindsight and humour the terrifying experience of seeing her first whitefella and her first moving car (she thought a rock had come alive).

Her storytelling is powerful and direct, and directors Martin Butler and Bentley Dean do well to let her speak for herself without editorialising. They have crafted a fluent narrative out of a few basic elements: eyewitness accounts, original footage, and a hauntingly beautiful landscape. This is a startling piece of history as well as a very human story.

This event is presented in conjunction with the exhibition We don’t need a map on display in Gallery 1 from 12 September – 1 November 2015.
