Melbourne Festival

The Melbourne Planetarium is pleased to announce that it will be involved with the upcoming Melbourne Festival. On Monday the 15th of October, the planetarium will be screening Lynette Wallworth’s entrancing fulldome film Coral: Rekindling Venus.

Australian installation artist Lynette Wallworth has spent the last five years surveying the majesty of our coral reefs for Coral: Rekindling Venus, an immersive, kaleidoscopic journey through the glowing underwater forests of Australia, Papua New Guinea and Indonesia. Coral: Rekindling Venus takes us deep into a world that only a handful of humans have ever seen before – the infinitely complex, vibrant aquatic kingdoms of this planet’s coral reefs.

Featuring jaw-dropping cinematography from Emmy Award-winner David Hannan and a hypnotic, ethereal soundtrack featuring specially recorded songs from Antony (of Antony and the Johnsons), legendary film composer Max Richter and our very own Gurrumul, Coral: Rekindling Venus is a staggering cinematic experience and an ecological call-to-arms.
