NFSA Restores: MAN FROM KANGAROO (with live score)
Sun 6 May @ 5.30pm | Arc cinema | $15/13
1919 | G | 82 mins | USA | D: Rex 'Snowy' Baker, Agnes Vernon, Charles Villiers
This Australian Western is one of a series of outdoor adventures made by our very own athlete/movie star, 'Snowy' Baker. The Man From Kangaroo tested Baker’s dramatic chops as a preacher who rescues his girlfriend from a gang of tough youths. The NFSA’s restoration of this gem of Australian silent cinema will be screened with a live, contemporary score by emerging talent, Joe Dolezal. A very rare experience not to be missed.
