Film Program
Westerns: Outlaws and Outsiders
Wednesdays 2pm & 7.15pm, Sundays 2pm (plus additional screenings)
The myth-haunted, arid landscapes of Sidney Nolan have parallels in the Western film genre. With stories that centre on the life of semi-nomadic
wanderers, outlaws and outsiders, Westerns often depict the discordance of
the land, people, history and mythology. This series presents a rare opportunity to view Westerns as they were intended to be seen – on the big screen.
