Frank Hurley - SOUTH 1919
In early July at the State Library NSW a very special cinema treat is scheduled.
State Library NSW Metcalfe Auditorium- classic centenary 1919-2019: South (1919) with soundtrack, 80 minutes. Sunday at 2pm July 7 Sydney born Frank Hurley made this acclaimed film record of Sir Ernest Shackleton's heroic but ill-starred attempt to cross Antarctica in 1914-16. It is both a unique historical document, and a tribute to the indomitable courage of a small party of men who set out on a voyage of discovery that turned into an epic struggle for survival. Before the presentation Graham Shirley shall introduce the film. Graham, former senior curator and historian at the National Film and Sound Archive, now works on a freelance basis as an oral historian, film historian and archival researcher. Tickets $25/$20 at the website home page right hand side or call 0419 267 318.
