About La Mama Cinematica
Cinematica’s #3 edition features an impressive line-up of Australian filmmakers including Melody Woodnutt, Grace Tan, Jessica Barclay Lawton, Alex Cardi, Paddy Hay & Louis Marlo. This series aims to gently explore Gender, Sexuality and our Natural Environment. How these concepts connect to each other (or not) is explored through the moving image and expressed using different filmmaking techniques (16mm, VHS and HD) as well as alternative styles of storytelling.
