Brimbank-based, Bosnian-Australian filmmaker, artist and genocide survivor Saidin Salkic will shortly be premiering his two most recent films, The Shocking and Swan Lake and the Atomic Bomb.
Each is a unique anti-war film dealing with the experience of war and violence and its influence on the consciousnesses of a poet.
Salkic’s work is very much an experience – an assault on the senses – and prompts audiences to consider the humanitarian and psychological impacts of war, and to question ways to peace, as relevant as ever, and to consider how that can be possible in the world today.
Saidin’s life and work was recently featured by both AMES Australia and SBS World News, and can currently be seen via his SBS On Demand interview.
The screenings are being curated by Cinespace Inc, and Euraw Stories and presented to the public for the first time, along with a Q&A with the artist himself.
