Protection Shellharbour Premiere & Christmas Special
On Tuesday 11th December 2018
6:00 - 8:00pm Save to calendar
Join us for a potluck dinner and special screening of the film Protection.
Featuring young people from Shellharbour area, Protection has been screening around Australia over the past six months and audiences and critics alike have been singing the praises of our local kids.
Check out the trailer at the film's website
Made collaboratively with children from public housing areas in the Illawarra, Protection uses a unique blend of film and animation to tell stories about childhood. It is inspired by the lives and experiences of the film’s adventurous and often hilarious young cast.
These are stories told by kids from their perspective making Protection a celebration of childhood and a tribute to the resilience of children.
The company behind this project is Beyond Empathy – a not-for-profit organisation with the catch cry: “We love art and we hate disadvantage!”
This is the Shellharbour Premiere of Protection, which was shot in Shellharbour and Wollongong, and this screening includes our special Christmas stories and also a story shot in the new Shellharbour library.
Because it’s our Christmas special and a celebration of our whirlwind few months, please bring a plate of food to share! Cold drinks, tea and coffee will be provided.
We hope to see you there!
