NARI Fundraiser: Film Night Special

The Australian Ageing Research Foundation is organising a special private screening of an extraordinary film that explores the life of Barbara Blackman, the former wife of celebrated artist Charles Blackman.  

Although, legally blind, Barbara Blackman saw her blindness as “different way of seeing.” This fascinating film explores her very unconventional life, filled with highs and lows and her strong determination to find meaning and authenticity in life.

Seeing from within is an inspirational film about a brilliant and challenging intellectual who on many fronts has contributed to our thinking about art, music and philanthropy in this country. Her libretto to Peter Sculthorpe's Eliza Surviva, her book of correspondence with Judith Wright or her recent, beautifully amusing book Dog's Doggerel are but three examples of her brilliant and penetrating intellect.

The film screening includes a champagne reception, private screening and Q&A with the film’s director, John Swindells.

Funds raised will support the mental health research by NARI.
