Join Museum Program Manager Leanne Kelly and special guests as they discuss the art of storytelling through photography and film
With soaring music, dialogue and beautiful cinematography, it might be easy to assume that if it’s a contest that film would win, hands down. But what if we learn to ‘read’ a photograph like we read a book – does a still image contain stories as varied and unique as each and every viewer?
Real or imagined, stories are a way for us to make sense of ourselves and our world. We can live a thousand lives instead of just one through engaging with the stories of others, learning and understanding that which may never be a personal experience. Join Museum Program Manager Leanne Kelly and special guests as they consider the art of storytelling through photography and film.
Guests include Robyn Stacey Michael Aird, anthropologist, curator and photographer Maxine Williamson, Brisbane Asia Pacific Film Festival and Asia Pacific Screen Awards Film Director Shawkat Amin Korki, writer, director and winner of the 2014 APSA UNESCO award for promotion and preservation of cultural diversity through film.
