Friday 23rd September:

Michael Lee Screening @ AFW


Still: Michael Lee - Razzle Dazzle Rhapsody, (1992)

Friday 23rd September, 8pm
Entry $6
2 Kerr St, Fitzroy

AFW is very pleased to present a long awaited screening of films by Melbourne experimental film icon Michael Lee. Lee came to Melbourne in 1968 to attend the only film school in Australia at the time – Swinburne. He was a founding board member of the Melbourne Film-makers Co-op.  

His films consist frequently of animations and flickerings made from simple and direct materials, often with a motif of the cross and other religious iconography (Lee is a re-lapsed Catholic). There is a directness in his work which can be both kitsch and transcendent. A rare opportunity not to be missed!  

All works screening on 16mm with the filmmaker present.
