Join us at the MCA for the Australian Premiere of “A Sunday in Sydney”, an exciting new documentary exploring the ways Sydneysiders from different cultural, language and religious backgrounds choose to spend their down time on Sundays – how they get together, play, talk, feast and keep their unique heritage alive.
Greater Sydney is one of the most multicultural areas in the world, with a significant number of its inhabitants originally born overseas. Through meaningful conversations with Clover Moore, Lord Mayor of Sydney, along with architects, artists, community leaders, surf lifesavers and communal gardeners from suburbs as diverse as Fairfield, Cronulla, Bondi, Manly and Parramatta, this 52-mn documentary questions what it means to be an Aussie in today’s society, and what it takes to build a people-centred city.
“A Sunday in Sydney” is part of a more global multimedia project called “A Sunday in…” by French filmmakers and urban planners Chloé Ledoux and Nicolas Brikke. It looks at what brings people together on Sundays in different cities around the world, from Stockholm to Bogota, Wellington to Lima.
The free screening will be followed by a live Q&A with the film directors. A great way to spend the afternoon before stepping outside to immerse yourself in the Vivid Sydney light extravaganza on the MCA façade and beyond!
