Asia Society, the long-time home base in New York City for Australian Short Film Today, is proud to present this annual screening. The 90 minute program features eclectic short films from Down Under, ranging from wry Australian humor, dark comedy, live action drama and clever animation.
This year's presentation will include legendary Australian filmmaker Jane Campion's 1982 student film, An Exercise in Discipline - Peel, which won the best short film prize at the Cannes Film Festival in 1986. This recently remastered version of Peel is courtesy of Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS).
Reception to follow.
