Heart of darkness
After a sell-out first screening, local filmmaker Johnny Abegg will be back at the Byron Community Centre for another screening of his latest film Two Weeks. Abegg describes the film as “an introspective documentary” and it follows him as he ventures alone deep into the heart of the Tasmanian wilderness to gain clarity during a period of growing confusion and unhappiness.
Armed only with a camera, Two Weeks exposes the universal questions that arise as we hurtle toward our own Saturn return; the fears, emotions and triumphs of his journey are all captured.
Joining him on the night will be the street smart folk singer M. Jack Bee who will launch his new EP In Loops at the same time.
The night will conclude with a Q&A with Johnny Abegg, and $1 from each ticket sold will go to Still Wild, Still Threatened; a group of grassroots activists protecting the ancient growth forests of Tasmania.
The screening is next Wednesday, November 10, and tickets are $13 pre-sale or $15 at the door. It starts at 7.30pm.
