CANCELLED | Mirka's Palace of Dreams (Screening)

THIS LIVE EVENT IS CANCELLED IN RESPONSE TO THE VICTORIAN LOCKDOWN. TICKET-HOLDERS WILL BE CONTACTED DIRECTLY TO INITIATE REFUNDS.

In this magical documentary fantasy from 1986, much-loved French-Australian artist Mirka Mora (1928-2018), who had never before ventured into the wilderness nor slept in a tent, camps out in the winter snows of Kosciusko National Park. Along with Tim McCartney Snape, the first Australian ever to reach the summit of Mt. Everest, and Nepalese Sherpa Mingma, she travels into the Kosciusko wilderness. Mirka’s unique and expressive personality helps viewers see and experience this wilderness from an artist’s perspective.
She comes to a greater realisation of the value of wilderness and the natural world, and shares her unique and often eccentric views on life, art and nature with her fellow travellers and us, the viewers.

St Kilda Film Festival presents this screening in partnership with the Jewish Museum of Australia whose current exhibition MIRKA presents an intimate, previously unseen view into the rich and fascinating life of the late Mirka Mora (1928–2018).
