Seventh Cinema

Thursday 25 January 2024 - Thursday 07 March 2024

Night Cries: A Rural Tragedy (film still), Tracy Moffatt, 1990

Seventh is pleased to introduce Seventh Cinema, a free public cinema season spanning seven weeks. 

Teaming up with guest artist Kori Miles, Seventh has curated a series of film programs on a temporary outdoor cinema on the gallery's adjacent lawn. This inaugural season is dedicated to exploring the intersections of neo/colonialism and global climate change, zooming in on global colonial expansion and its persistent effects on the environment, human rights, and cultural landscapes.

Join us for weekly film screenings where each session showcases a short film followed by a feature. Through the films that we have selected, we aim to spotlight the resilience ingrained in the struggles for self-determination within global First Nations and other hegemonised communities. Themes of storytelling, family, social justice activism, home, and transformation weave through our program, highlighting the powerful and enduring role of resistance.
