A sentimental Bloke

The Sentimental Bloke is a 1919 Australian silent film based on CJ Dennis’s tales of working-class life and love in the backstreets of Sydney. 

In 2019, the National Film and Sound Archive (NFSA) of Australia digitally restored the film to mark its 100th anniversary as part of the NFSA Restores program. In 2021, composer and pianist Ian Munro composed a new score for the film using Australian songs from the period of the film. Ian and pianist Ying Ho perform Ian’s new score live in the venue while the NFSA’s 2019 digitally restored film is played, so that the film may be enjoyed in as close to its original form as possible. 

The film screening will be followed by afternoon tea and talk by composer Ian Munro. 

This event is on August 20 at 6.30pm in Studio D1.29 at Southern Cross University, free tickets will be available for flood-affected members of our community.
