COLLECTORS/COLLECTIONS: WAIKERIE FILMS focuses on the preservation and presentation of 8mm films made by local Waikerie residents of historical community events. These films form an integral part in recording the town’s cultural and social history and poetically frame the relationship to the river and local environment as well as highlighting a period when the Waikerie Filmo club was actively making short artistic films in the area.
The Waikerie Film Club Restoration Group in association with the Waikerie District Historical Society have partnered with artists Nadia Cusimano, Paul Gazzola and OSCA (Open Space Contemporary Arts) to engage with community members, who currently have in their possession 8 mm films. Other participants will include a call for local writers and a local photographer.
A large-scale film / community event will be held in Waikerie as part of the 2018 SA History Festival to present these fascinating works as well as the creation of a 3dvd set of edited films and booklet that unearths the who’s who and what’s what in each film.
COLLECTORS/COLLECTIONS: WAIKERIE FILMS is a creative exploration of the unique filmic history of the area seen through the eyes of a number of local filmmakers and their enduring personal collections.
