> Life in Movement
> 
> Tanja Liedtke was a woman on the brink of artistic stardom. Astute, dedicated and widely admired as a dancer and choreographer, she was an artist of great vision and promise. In 2007, just as she was about to assume the prestigious position of Artistic Director at the Sydney Dance Company, the 29 year old was killed, the victim of a tragic road accident.
> 
> Life In Movement screens at Palace Barracks at 7.00pm today. Director / producers Bryan Mason and Sophie Hyde will be in attendance.
> 
>  
> 
> The Clouds Have Stories: The Art of the Torres Strait Islands
> 
> In July this year, Brisbane's Cultural Centre played host to the largest showcase of Torres Strait Islander art ever collected.
> 
> Filmmaker Daniel Marsden was invited to cover the event. Initially approaching it as a simple archival exercise, the further Marsden burrowed into the history of this unique and overlooked artistic tradition, the more he realised that he needed to make a film that would stand as testament to the enduring power of Torres Strait Islander art.
> 
> The Clouds Have Stories: The Art of the Torres Strait Islands is a free event at the State Library at 6.00pm Tuesday 8 November.
>

> Bubbles @ BIFF: Melancholia
> 
> Celebrating her lavish wedding, Justine (Kirsten Dunst, in a performance that won best actress at Cannes) notices something amiss in the evening sky: a prominent star has been blocked out. As her wedding falls apart, and her life spirals downward into misery, the astrological anomaly is explained: the star was blocked by the planet Melancholia, which is now hurtling toward a collision with Earth.
> 
> Melancholia screens at the Palace Barracks at 6.30pm Wednesday 9 November. The $20 ticket price includes a glass of Rococo bubbles by De Bortoli on arrival.
