This digital collection of selected 16mm films made by the Ubu Films group presents a unique opportunity to reconsider the wealth of invention that signifies one of the most important cultural periods in Australia.
Garry Shead is one of Australia’s most famous and acclaimed lyrical figurative artists. The films represent a journey through his life, one which reflects a serene beauty, a profound lyricism and the ability to celebrate the joy of life and of love.
This unique experimental film is a rare example of avantgarde – underground film culture in the 1960-70 in Eastern Europe. It also contains invaluable archival footage of a ritualistic physical performance style.
Three experimental, impressionist films by Peter Tammer. Includes: MY BELLE, HEY MARCEL..., QUEEN OF THE NIGHT
Projected on two screens, with two separate soundtracks, the always exceptional, and occasionally brilliant, photographic images are enhanced by de Bruyn’s rigorous control over a wide variety of experimental techniques.

Experimental Film TAKAHIKO IIMURA Since the 1960s, Takahiko iimura’s explorations of the moving image have probed the relationship between media, time and language and have strived to redefine the exhibition of cinema as a mode of performance. He has worked closely with the giants of experimental film such as members of the Hi-Red Centre and Fluxus, Yoko Ono, Jonas Mekas, John Cage, Stan Brakhage and Stan Vanderbeek. His uncompromising work, here presented on DVD, bridges boundaries between film and performance art.

After more than forty years apart, Andreas and Claire embark on an affair as intense as when they were young lovers. The connection they shared is still there so they soon involve in a rekindled love affair.
Kalaupapa, a peninsula on the Hawaiian island of Molokai, with its swaying palms, unspoiled beaches and stunning mountains, is a paradise on earth - but with a dark and dramatic history. Kalaupapa is a leprosy colony.
A love story about a Greek and an Australian struggle with the barriers of their cultural differences. It is set against a background of Melbourne’s Greek community and the lifestyle of an Anglo-Saxon divorcee.
Man of Flowers is both erotic and richly amusing, with a tragic after-glow. The essence of the story is the confrontation between modern art and traditional art; or between modern love and traditional love; or even between modern life and traditional life.
Paul Cox’s ambitious portrait, the true story of a 19th century priest who volunteered to go to the island of Molokai, to console and care for the lepers.

The film looks back over the history of the city in the XX century: over the rise and fall of the social system identified by social theorists as ‘Fordism’; the way the city was shaped by the automobile; and its decline following the deindustrialisation, leaving it ill-adapted to the post-Fordist society of the epoch of globalisation.
This feature-length documentary delves into the lives of three aspiring Hollywood screenwriters as they pour their hearts into their spec scripts, pitch their ideas to anyone who will listen, go to meetings, hold table reads, and work at low-level day-jobs - all in the hopes of one day seeing one of their beloved creations made into a movie.
British theologian, Robert Beckford traces the rollercoaster relationship between faith and film, from the first Bible movies, made more than a century ago, to the present day. Australia only.
It features candid interviews with the filmmakers - including Vera Chytilova, Jiri Menzel, Jan Nemec, etc. - who created the Czech New Wave. Their comments reflect the moral and spiritual crisis that pervades the Czech Republic today.
Michael Chanan’s documentary on ‘New Cinema of Latin America’, made for the UK’s Channel 4 in 1983, is now an historic document of the first twenty-five years of a continental movement which revolutionised cinema.
