Michael Dillon introduces his multi-international award winning film about Angus Paradice, a 12 year old Australian horse rider who dares to race with local Mongolian children in their dangerous long distance horse races.
Despite a bad fall in a training race, he gets back on the saddle and does well, wins the respect of everyone, and in the process becomes ‘a little bit Mongolian’.
Then it will be our turn to become a little bit Mongolian, for one of the delights of the film is its wonderful music score complete with throat and harmonic singing, the latter by none other than Australia’s world class virtuoso in the field, Dean Frenkel.
Dean will be with us and will astonish us with a live performance of many forms of harmonic singing. He will then take our own voices where we thought they couldn’t go, through a first lesson in an ancient artform we are all capable of mastering.
This session will run from 1 to 3pm on Saturday 7th of August.
All tickets for this session are $30.
