The 2021/22 Menzies Screening Series continues with We Don't Need A Map, a bold, poetic exploration of the history and meaning of the Southern Cross, from writer-director Warwick Thornton (Samson & Delilah, Sweet Country) and writer-producer Brendan Fletcher (Mad Bastards).

Investigating the significance of that great southern constellation from a range of scientific, political and spiritual perspectives, the film journeys through the cultural imagination of a continent, illustrated by interviews with elders, custodians, authors, academics, musicians and tattooists. Created with the aim of provoking hearty debate, this punk rock doc taps into the complex heart of who we are as Australians, and finds Thornton searching for common ground in a way that only he can.

This online screening is free and open to all (including audiences outside the UK), and will take place live and online via Eventive. It will be followed by a live Q&A with a special guest (TBC), chaired by Menzies Screenings curator, Stephen Morgan. If you miss the live session, there will also be an opportunity to watch the film and recorded Q&A for 14 days after the event.
