Join Helena Hunter for a screening of her new short film Showing Seeing followed by a discussion with poet and writer Saradha Soobrayen. The film is set in an optical museum and a museum of theatre and performance. The settings present a framing device for a personal narrative that negotiates the visual acts of remembering and forgetting. As the camera contemplates theatrical objects and optical artefacts a voice recounts experiences relating to looking, training, and performance.
