Rare film treat hits the screen

The film directed by Kaneto Shindo depicts a small family – a husband, wife and two sons – struggling to get by on a tiny island in the Seto Inland Sea, over the course of a year.

They are the island’s only occupants and survive by farming. It will be presented with its original Japanese soundtrack and English subtitles.

The Naked Island will sceen Sunday afternoon at CTC@Robertson from 2pm. Tickets are $10 and children under 16 are free.

A cafe will be open at 1.30pm and tea and coffee will be available. This is a fundraising event for the CTC@Robertson at 58-60 Hoddle Street, Robertson.
