The Street Theatre
The Outer Space Film Quartet, is a suite of experimental films (Moonrise, Musca, Memorabilia, Requiem) created by film maker and anthropologist team Ceridwen Dovey and Rowena Potts, contemplates human relationships with landscapes on Earth and in outer space. These themes will be explored through a round table discussion following the films where our film makers will be joined by Leslie Barnes, Associate Professor of French at the ANU School of Literature, Languages and Linguistics; Dr Brad Tucker an Astrophysicist and Cosmologist, whose work involves exploding stars called supernovas; and Alex Jorden, a Senior Exhibition Developer at Questacon.
