Event Details

Colin Offord - singer, traveller, and instrument inventor - will play live to a screening of Norman Dawn's 1927 film adaptation of Marcus Clarke's novel For the term of his natural life.

Offord's blend of birdsong and sounds from the Australian natural world reframe and enrich the onscreen depiction of the lives of Australian convicts, shot on location at Berrima, Sydney Harbour, Wombeyan Caves, and the ruins of the convict settlement at Port Arthur.
