A triple bill featuring Australian explorer, natural scientist and artist William Blandowski, Australian artist Julie Gough and Belgian musician Rene Jacobs, is the next program in the Arts on Film series to be screened this Wednesday June 12 in Arts.
Blandowski’s specimens is a film by Malcolm Mckinnon about William Blandowski who led a scientific expedition from Melbourne to the junction of the Murray and Darling Rivers in 1857. The film uncovers some of the rich scientifc and cultural material he gathered at the Murray River, and conjures up the wonder and magic of this turning point in history.
