Landmark Arts Centre event
Richmond Film Society – screening of ‘Sweet Country' (Australia)
Set in the Australian outback in 1920 and loosely based on an actual case, the film tells the story of a middle-aged Aboriginal farm-hand who, in fear for his life, kills a violent, boorish and racist landowner whilst acting in self-defence. Lacking any faith in the local justice system (“I’m a blackfella who killed a whitefella”), he and his wife flee and are pursued across the bleak and beautiful landscape by the town’s racist police sergeant and his posse.
Members go free. Non-member tickets are £5 (full-time students £3) and can be purchased in advance from The Exchange’s Box Office (in person or by telephone on 020 8240 2399) or online at http://exchangetwickenham.co.uk/events/. Tickets are also available on the night (cash only).
Richmond Film Society event

In addition, the Royal Photographic Society's Visual Art Group will be showing its 2019 Print Exhibition and there will also be a selection of images from pupils at St. Catherine's School for Girls in Twickenham.
