Uz vs Them
by Richard Bell
The Castlemaine Local and International Film Festival (CLIFF) (21–24 Nov) is off to a strong start, playing host to three of artist Richard Bell’s recent works for it’s inaugural run at Theatre Royal. CLIFF is showing Bell’s highly acclaimed and challenging trilogy of works Scratch an Aussie (2008), Broken English (2009), and The Dinner Party (2013). To warm you up we present the combative Uz vs Them, in which Bell raises important and revealing questions of Aboriginal politics through a stylised physical and verbal sparring match. Go Richie go!
