True History of the Kelly Gang: Screening and Q&A

Concert or Performance

26 Nov 2022 Once Only Event

Inspired by Peter Carey’s Man Booker prize-winning novel of the same name, True History of the Kelly Gang is an epic, fictionalised retelling of the life of legendary Australian bushranger Ned Kelly. Lauded by critics and winner of 3 AACTA Awards, the film shatters the mythology of the notorious icon to reveal the essence behind his life, and forces a country to stare back into the ashes of its brutal past.

Written for the screen by Shaun Grant (Snowtown) and directed by the award-winning Justin Kurzel (Snowtown, Nitram), it stars a spectacular cast of Australian and international stars including BAFTA-winner George MacKay as Ned Kelly, Oscar-winner Russell Crowe, Nicholas Hoult, Essie Davis, Claudia Karvan, Charlie Hunnam and the late Uncle Jack Charles.

Arrive early to visit our Australians and Hollywood exhibition, which features True History of the Kelly Gang, and hear from one of our curators about the film and exhibition.

Following the screening, photographer Matthew Thorne will join us for a Q&A session.
