11 May 2023 BHS Film Night – Star Cinema Eaglehawk
The Eye of Wilkins
Wilkins was one of the greatest polar explorers. He was also a world-class photographer. For the first time, the photos and films of this South Australian, Sir George Hubert Wilkins, are being brought together in this new documentary by Peter Maddern. By virtue of Wilkins own efforts and the commissions he was sent on, these images, sourced from across the world, also represent perhaps the most significant collection of the times (the 25 years from 1910) by any one photographer acting alone.
The documentary takes us from the trenches of the Great War to the maiden round the world voyage of the Graf Zeppelin, with vision from his famous flights over the Arctic and Antarctic as well as his infamous submarine travels under the polar ice cap.
A presentation by the writer and director of this documentary, Peter Maddern, precedes the screening. 75 minutes (100 minutes including prior presentation). Rated PG, Historical Documentary written and directed by Peter Maddern
Cost $22.00. Bookings will be open shortly through Star Cinema.
