This years 2018 Short Film “Comrades and a Cabin’ will be screened
Saturday JUNE 9 at 7pm
This documentary explores the background to and construction of the one and only Briagolong RSL Log Cabin in the late 1940’s. Narrator and consummate story-teller, Chris Lawless, escorts the viewer through a number of anecdotes – some humorous but always poignant – which intersperse a series of interviews (with Jane Mosley, Dawn Freeman and Mark Wagstaff) highlighting the beneficial relationship between war veterans and the Cabin and the Cabin’s contemporary relevance to the town.
The narrative of the film is adeptly promoted by a ballad (written specifically for the project by Diane Lawton), arranged and sung (by Anita Hensen) and recorded locally (by Barrie Clissold). Historical re-enactments (performed by local townsfolk) add richness. The film was devised, written, produced, filmed, acted, sung and edited by a group of Briagolonians.
Producer: Geoff Benton.
Directors: Rod McMillan, Colleen Geysen, Paul Geysen.
Gerard Callinan will host an informative Q&A session with people involved in making this locally-significant documentary after the premiere.
