The Armchair Anthropologist Movie Night

June 15th, 2021

None of us can travel at the moment, but if you like travelling come and enjoy a series of documentaries on ways of life very far from suburban Australia. Come to the jungles of Sumatra, the steppes of Mongolia, the savannah of East Africa, and the ice of the Arctic, to witness ways of life of the traditional people of these places. Most of the documentaries were shot on 16mm in the 1970s, and even if you could visit the same places today many of the people you would meet would now own smartphones and in some cases have moved to cities. This will be a monthly series.

November’s film takes us to the world of the Yanomamo of the Amazon basin, and follows their relationships, socialising and storytelling, and hunting traditions.

Pizzas are available from 7pm.

Next event is 22 November 2021, 8-9pm.
