Reel Deal with Vonne Patiag
Calling all film buffs! The Youth Collective is hosting a film club for people aged 15 to 25, in conjunction with the film series Merrily we go to hell which celebrates women in cinema. Following the Saturday afternoon film screening, guest critics will lead an insightful discussion to unpack the themes and cinematic techniques. This month, watch the coming-of-age classic Just another girl on the I.R.T from 1.30pm in the Domain Theatre then join us for snacks and a post-screening chat hosted by independent filmmaker Vonne Patiag.
Vonne Patiag is a filmmaker, writer and actor. Proud to be a Western Sydney storyteller working across stage and screen, he is interested in producing personal stories that explore diverse intersectional identities and dissect issues of racism and geographical prejudice prevalent in Australia.
