The Dawn Wall

The Dawn Wall is here! Join us to see the most anticipated climbing film ever made. More than just a climbing movie, The Dawn Wall is an epic and inspirational story that will take you into the hearts and minds of the protagonists and is to be enjoyed by all. In January, 2015, American rock climbers Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson captivated the world with their effort to climb the Dawn Wall, a seemingly impossible 3,000 foot rock face in Yosemite National Park, California. The pair lived on the sheer vertical cliff for weeks, igniting a frenzy of global media attention. But for Tommy Caldwell, the Dawn Wall was much more than just a climb. It was the culmination of a lifetime defined by overcoming obstacles. At the age of 22, the climbing prodigy was taken hostage by rebels in Kyrgyzstan. Shortly after, he lost his index finger in an accident, but resolved to come back stronger. When his marriage fell apart, he escaped the pain by fixating on the extraordinary goal of free climbing the Dawn Wall. Blurring the line between dedication and obsession, Caldwell and his partner Jorgeson spend six years meticulously plotting and practicing their route. On the final attempt, with the world watching, Caldwell is faced with a moment of truth. Should he abandon his partner to fulfill his ultimate dream, or risk his own success for the sake of their friendship? Winner of The Audience Award at South By Southwest. Accepted to Melbourne International Film Festival. Described by Variety Magazine as a "must-see". 100% on Rotten Tomatoes. Check it out now!

Exposed Objects - Artist Talk

Local Artist and Jewellery Designer Fiona Frew is interested in how objects are an important part of our daily lives and cultural memory. Her work uses found objects as a way of re-using things that have been thrown out, reducing the impact on our environment and wellbeing. Come and join her in a discussion about objects found locally and Fiona will also share about her own art practice. You are encouraged to bring your own small objects that can be included in a public collection of objects. This collection will then be used by the public to create cyanotype prints that will be presented in the final exhibition. This artist lead discussion is free to attend and all are very welcome. For more info get in touch with Fiona directly via: info@fionafrew.com or contact The Arts Village on 07 343 7108.
