16:00 SAME SAME BUT DIFFERENT (2007) @ The Flicks 2
 
event pic

Based on the true story of Benjamin Prufer and Sreykeo Solvan, who still live in Phnom Penh at this moment.

The unexpected and uncertain love story of Sreykeo, a 21 year old bar girl in Phnom Penh and Ben, a young German student traveling to Cambodia on a post graduation summer trip. When Ben returns home to Germany he discovers that Sreyko is sick and he takes on the responsibility to save her. On the way he discovers a world where not everyone is dealt the same cards and where motivations are not always pure.

An epic sweeping love story spanning two continents, “Same Same But Different” is “Romeo and Juliet” meets “Dr. Zhivago” meets “Pretty Woman.” Kross carries this film from opening to closing credits. Just as he startled the world in “The Reader,” the now 19-year-old enters leading man status here. The film is visually stunning with breathtaking cinematography, costume design, and art direction all beyond compare.

(107 mins, drama)

18:00 Australian Cinema: HEALING (2014) @ The Flicks 1
 
event pic

At the tail end of a 16-year sentence, inmate Matt (Hugo Weaving) is sent to a low-security, pre-release prison with a special program that pairs men with injured game birds. A film rich in ideas and vivid characters. Watching it is an exhilarating experience.

There is an organic wholeheartedness to Healing that helps it avoid being twee, thanks in part to a clutch of strong performances. - THE GUARDIAN

Admittedly, Healing is very heavy on metaphors and symbols, yet director Craig Monahan (The Interview) – who co-wrote With veteran tapper Alison Nisselle (Phoenix), inspired by a real prison program – never makes the obvious feel forced or mawkish. - 3AW

A prison story with a twist, it’s set in the Victorian countryside and graced with moments of pastoral beauty, thanks to Oscar-winning cinematographer Andrew Lesnie. - SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

This is possibly the most sentimental prison movie I’ve ever seen. And I was so grateful. It’s really lovely. The performances are fabulous. - AT THE MOVIES (AUSTRALIA)

not to miss! 20:00 Australian Cinema: GALLIPOLI (1982) @ The Flicks 1
 
event pic

The first of two consecutive films to see director Peter Weir team with Mel Gibson (the other being The Year of Living Dangerously), Gallipoli follows two idealistic young friends, Frank (Gibson) and Archy (Mark Lee), who join the Australian army during World War I and fight the doomed Battle of Gallipoli in Turkey.

The first half of the film documents the lives of the young men in Australia, detailing their personalities and beliefs.

The second half of the movie chronicles the ill-fated and ill-planned battle, where the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps is hopelessly outmatched by the enemy forces.

Gallipoli was the recipient of 8 prizes at the 1981 Australian Film Institute Awards.

Weir’s work has a delicacy, gentleness, even wispiness that would seem not well suited to the subject. And yet his film has an uncommon beauty, warmth, and immediacy, and a touch of the mysterious, too. - NEW YORK TIMES

exhibition
"Undivided Nature" by Sin Rithy @ Romeet Gallery
 
event pic

Romeet is pleased to present “Undivided Nature; the death within life / the life within death”, a solo exhibition by the Battambang based artist Sin Rithy.

This exhibition is a discussion of contradictions around several life & death forces. As long as life is, life is an empty blank space in which all stories can be written. Death, as a never-ending and certain journey, is full. Emptiness is the direct experience of boundless, ever-expanding and undivided nature.

Sin Rithy makes this exhibition literally alive, by including living animals and textiles waving in the wind. Nature, not in its botanical aspect but instead referring to the human being, the intrinsic instinct, represented through animals, conflict, canvas, wood or portraits is the main subject of Rithy’s works; but with this omniscient question: what is full and what is empty?

Overtaking sadness and pity, artist Sin Rithy tries to pictures emotions and feelings and to give to the audience an expression of the invisible wich always occupied emptiness to make it fullness.

Subjects of this Sin Rithy exhibition reveal the artist awareness of his past and thereby his redemption.

exhibition
"Innermost II" by Heng Ravuth @ Java Café & Gallery
 
event pic

This new work by Heng Ravuth is a continuation of his last solo exhibition of the same title in 2011. Innermost II is a series of mixed media canvases depicting the artist in different positions of contemplation, repose and absorption.

Ravuth refers to his self-portraits as an “obsession” to express emotion, vulnerability and personal truth. Although the artist uses his own body and face to create the compositions, he obscures his identity to minimize a personal narrative leaving space for the viewer to imagine their own in his place. He sees himself not as a messenger but the medium.
