Date: 25th August 2018
6:30pm – 8:30pm
Location: Sailmaker’s Shed at Broome Museum
Tickets: $10.00
Organiser: Broome Historical Society & Museum

Two short silent films showing some of the earliest footage of Broome and the Kimberley coast will presented by the Broome Historical Society in the historic Sailmaker’s shed. Made in 1917 and 1926, each film presents images of what was considered of interest about Broome, the pearling industry, and the north west, to western audiences in Australia and overseas at the time.

An introduction by former WA Premier Peter Dowding and other speakers will contextualize each film for the present day. Movie tickets also include entry to the Broome Historical Society Museum.

Indigenous people are advised that the films include images of deceased people and some footage may be offensive.
