Last Wave, The
DIRECTOR: Peter WeirAustralia : 1977 : 101MINS : PG
MERCURY CINEMA, 12:45PM, TUESDAY 1 MARCH
(No bookings required. To ensure admission please arrive early.)
The Last Wave attempts to invoke a pan-Aboriginal cosmology as a force underlying contemporary Australia, as a precursor to the 1990s melding of New Age beliefs with all things Indigenous. Ancient ancestral stories are manipulated and overlaid with pseudo-psychological conceptions of Dreaming in this apocalyptic vision (which coincidentally stars a young Katrina Sedgwick).
