SATURDAY: Fundraising Screening – All the Way Through Evening

The World AIDS Day screening of All the Way Through Evening will be a fundraiser for the AIDS Action Council of the ACT. There were many tears during the screening launch last night, it is a very touching documentary by Melbourne documentary maker Rohan Spong.

SYNOPSIS
No place was greater ravaged by the initial outbreak of HIV/AIDS in the early 1980s as New York City. As the silent killer swept through Manhattan, one eccentric concert pianist saw fit to collect the beautiful music created by her fallen friends. Every year, in honour of these friends and countless others, the now-elderly Mimi Stern Wolfe performs a breathtaking annual concert of moving works by local composers lost to the disease.

Winner of the Special Jury Prize at the NYC Downtown FILM FESTIVAL, ALL THE WAY THROUGH EVENING follows Mimi as she prepares for her twentieth World AIDS Day concert. Musical numbers tell the emotional story of the pandemic, alongside candid interviews with the friends, families and lovers who survived it. This poignant documentary film is a reminder of the horror of the early years of HIV/AIDS in New York City and a testament to the power of music.

Here’s a warning to early morning swimmers at Lakeside Leisure Centre, Greenway. The Tuggeranong Community Festival is on at the park this weekend and on Monday morning the carpark is usually littered with broken beer bottles, empty Bundy and Coke cans, discarded home-made bongs and other rubbish. It is likely to be worse this year because the organisers are promising an “interactive street art display”.

It’s just a pity that those of us who want to stay fit and pursue a healthy lifestyle have to put up with the excesses and grubbiness of the lowlifes and bogans.

Are you for real?

I think you could be a little less judgemental, and look after your own backyard first, sunshine!
