Event Details

The ARTSLAB is proud to present Wash My Soul in the River’s Flow, a film of love and loss and what it means to truly come ‘home’. A visual and musical journey. A love story in song. Don’t miss your chance to experience this stunning film.

In 2004, Archie Roach and Ruby Hunter, artists at the peak of their power, told their stories through spoken word and song in Kura Tungar — Songs from the River, a collaboration with Paul Grabowsky and the Australian Art Orchestra.

Now, in Wash My Soul in the River’s Flow, Hunter and Roach’s profoundly moving experiences — about being stolen as children, finding each other and returning to Country — come to the big screen in a cinematic celebration of love, survival and triumph.

There will be a Q&A with the director Philippa Bateman and producer Kate Hodges. The film is rated PG.

Come from 5pm and mingle. Drinks and nibbles included in ticket price.
