For months now we've been working with Perth's own projection maestro Roly Skender and Frankensound and the NFSA on a three-screen installation in a vacant shopfront at the Hay St end of the Piccadilly Arcade. Using some of the earliest footage of Perth ever shot this lovely piece of history is drawn from the beautifully restored Corrick collection.
The Corrick Collection contains some of the oldest surviving silent films in the world. They were restored after spending many years in a Tasmanian garage, eventually being donated to the NFSA by the Corrick family.
The collection features hundreds of nitrate films collected by the Tasmanian Corrick family, who were touring their vaudeville show around the world at the turn of the century, screening many short films along the way.
