Van Diemen’s Land – Film Screening

Wednesday 24 January 2018

Booking essential
Yorks Café at Ikon

In collaboration with Flatpack, Ikon is programming a series of film nights to coincide with the Thomas Bock and Edmund Clark exhibitions. This starts with a screening of Van Diemen’s Land (2009), the story of Alexander Pearce, one of Australia’s most notorious convicts. In 1822 Pearce and seven fellow convicts escaped from Macquarie Harbour penal station only to be faced with the hardships of the Tasmanian wilderness. Thomas Bock sketched Pearce before and after his execution in 1824 and these portraits feature in Ikon’s exhibition. This film contains mature content and is not suitable for younger audiences.

Yorks Café at Ikon will be offering a delicious slice of pizza and a beer or soft drink for £7. 

Further screenings as part of this film series:
The Last Confession of Alexander Pearce

Please book online or call Ikon on 0121 248 0708. Please note that online booking closes at 5 pm on Wednesday 24 January 2018.
