Alice is Everywhere at ACMI

Sat 19th May, 2018 – Sat 2nd June, 2018
Federation Square Melbourne
Price: $12–$84
Explore the influence of Alice in Wonderland through family-friendly and challenging adult films.

To accompany Wonderland – the huge exhibition examining the influence of Lewis Carroll's story on film – ACMI is screening cinematic adaptations of Alice in Wonderland.

Selections include the surreal mania of Czech filmmaker and animator Jan Švankmajer; '60s American Beat cinema in the form of The Flower Thief; Madonna in all her '80s glory in Desperately Seeking Susan; and Valerie and Her Week of Wonders, a gothic fever dream about a teenager bridging the gap to adulthood by descending into a demonic netherworld to get a pair of earrings. Don't worry, it's not all nightmarish material, there's also a screening of the classic Wizard of Oz from 1939 staring Judy Garland.

Individual tickets as well as three- and six-film passes are available at acmi.net.au.
