Flickerfest Tour has come and gone and if you’ve got any comments or feedback they’d be most welcome.
Emails to admin at endcredits.org.au please.

Two great films coming up with Jim Jarmusch’s PATERSON at CoCA on Sunday <http://www.centre-of-contemporary-arts-cairns.com.au/events/film.php> followed by Amy Berg’s JANIS, LITTLE GIRL BLUE at The Tanks <http://www.ticketlink.com.au/whats-on/films> on Wednesday 29. Having seen Paterson on a recent trip south I’d urge you not to miss it, I’m certainly going to enjoy a second visit.

Dir. Wim Wenders- US (MA) 100 mins
In English

Paterson (Adam Driver - Star Wars: The Force Awakens & Midnight Special) is a bus driver in the city of Paterson, New Jersey — they share the name. 

Every day, Paterson adheres to a simple routine: he drives his daily route, observing the city as it drifts across his windshield and overhearing fragments of conversation swirling around him; he writes poetry into a notebook; he walks his dog; he stops in a bar and drinks exactly one beer; he goes home to his wife, Laura (Golshifteh Farahani - My Sweet Pepperland & About Elly). 

By contrast, Laura’s world is ever changing. New dreams come to her almost daily, each a different and inspired project. Paterson loves Laura and she loves him. He supports her newfound ambitions; she champions his gift for poetry. 

The film quietly observes the triumphs and defeats of daily life, along with the poetry evident in its smallest details. 

Jarmusch has created a small miracle of a film, one that is both intellectually dazzling and emotionally provocative. - David Wiegand - San Francisco Chronicle.

7:30pm Wednesday  March 29
Tank 5 - Tanks Arts Centre
From Academy Award nominated Director Amy J Berg and narrated by musician Cat Power comes a raw and powerful documentary on the evolution of Janis Joplin’s journey to fame, from her musical rise in the 1960’s to her battle with alcohol and a heroin addiction.

Joplin was a powerhouse when she sang, and her recordings have never left the radio or the hearts of rock fans worldwide. A new understanding of a bright, complex woman whose surprising rise and sudden death at the age of 27 changed music forever.

This in depth examination presents an intimate and insightful portrait of a complicated, driven, and often beleaguered artist. Joplin's own words tell much of the film's story through a series of letters she wrote to her parents over the years, many of them made public here for the first time.
