    From Gulf to Gulf to Gulf (2013)

    A boat has many powers: to gather a society in its making, to distribute goods, to carry people and ideas across places that, it seems to us, are more different than ever before. From Gulf to Gulf to Gulf is a result of four years of dialogue, friendship and exchange between CAMP and a group of sailors from the Gulf of Kutch. Their travels and those of co-seafarers from Sindh, Baluchistan, and Southern Iran through the gulfs of Persia and Aden show us a world cut into many pieces, not easily bridged by nostalgics or nationalists. Instead, we follow the physical crossings made by these groups of people who make and sail wooden boats and who also make videos, sometimes with songs married to them.

    Autopsy on a Dream (2013)

    Autopsy on a Dream (2013)

    In 1968, John Weiley shot ‘Autopsy on a Dream’ – a film about the Sydney Opera House detailing its construction process and the politics of Jorn Utzon’s dismissal. Weiley’s film was controversial; it was screened once and then he was told it had been destroyed. Forty five years later a copy was discovered in the BBC vaults by an ABC producer looking for archive footage of the Opera House. Weiley was contacted and told about a film that had no sound track. Weiley was overjoyed; for years he had kept the original sound. So began the painstaking process of restoring this record of a unique moment in Australian culture to its former glory, complete with updated voice-over from the original narrator, Bob Ellis. It is set in context by a 30 minute prologue entitled ‘The Dream of Perfection’. Made by the same filmmaker, John Weiley, forty-five years on, ‘Dream of Perfection’ tells the story of the 1968 film – from commission to destruction, to surprise resurrection.
