Gary Foley: Basically Black

Join one of Australia's most recognised Indigenous performers and activists, Gary Foley, on a unique journey through his life on the stage, screen, politics and advocacy. Featuring a special live presentation by Foley and introductions to two classic 70's works, this focus is a rare opportunity to get under the skin of one of the most idiosyncratic, pioneering and well-known of Australian stage, screen and political voices. Screening online as part of this program are Phillip Noyce's fabulous works Castor & Pollux: A Tale of Two Spiritual Brothers (1974), which inspired Gary to agree to perform in Noyce's later work, Backroads (1977).

This session is presented by the National Film & Sound Archive (NFSA) and the Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS).
