Discover the fascinating history behind the the National Film and Sound Archive’s heritage-listed headquarters and follow the story of a Canberra landmark in this 45 minute presentation.

As the former Australian Institute of Anatomy, the NFSA’s building had an interesting (and sometimes disturbing) history before its current role in preserving Australia’s audiovisual heritage.
