It’s a week of ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances – from spies to submarines to vengeance – along with a light-hearted dose of a classic cartoon rivalry.
In addition to our regular programming, tonight’s screening of Belgian co-production KURSK is being presented in partnership with the Embassy of the Royal Kingdom of Belgium, who will be hosting a pre-screening reception from 6:30 pm at Badger & Co in the Kambri Precinct. The Embassy have been kind enough to extend an invitation for any ANU Film Group members attending the screening to come along before the film for Belgian beer and nibbles – so be sure to drop by and enjoy their hospitality!
