A brand-new restoration from NFSA Restores of filmmaker Lawrence Johnston's stunning documentary, Eternity. Johnston's 1994 award winning film tells the story of Sydneysider Arthur Stace, who famously chalked the word 'Eternity' in elegant copperplate handwriting on the streets of his hometown. Stace had a hard life, growing up in inner-city poverty, working as a stretcher bearer in World War l, returning to Sydney a chronic alcoholic. in 1930, however, he embraced Christianity, sobered up, and started his life's work - going out each night to write his anonymous message on Sydney's pavements. Today, his message is a Sydney icon, referenced by artists like Martin Sharp, and emblazoned across Sydney Harbour Bridge as part of the 2000 New Year's Eve Celebrations. Followed by a Q&A session with Lawrence Johnston.
