Port Arthur Talks: The Pioneering Cinematography of Dof Hallam
The Tasman Peninsula on film: the pioneering cinematography of Dorothy Hallam
James Parker will present archival films, with sound, of the Tasman Peninsula in the mid-to-late 20th century,
mostly shot by Dorothy (Dof) Hallam. Dof was the first woman to shoot
film for the ABC, and is rightly celebrated as a pioneer of the film
industry. Dof will be at the talk, and will be interviewed by James.
Now a long-term resident of the Tasman Peninsula and former PAHSMA
employee, James Parker worked in the Australian film industry in the
heady days of its revival in the 1970s and ‘80s. He sees the
documentary “Not Quite Hollywood” as encapsulating his somewhat misspent
youth – but he wouldn’t swap it for quids.
On Wednesday 30 September at 12 noon at the Asylum, Port Arthur Historic Site
Attendance by booking only.
For bookings please phone 1800 659 101 between 10am and 4pm or email: [email protected]
