Love Stories @ Darwin Festival

  • The Lighthouse, Festival Park

Real Stories. Real People. Real Love.

A unique cinematic experience interweaving film, photography and live music performance to share the tender, intimate stories so often brushed aside amongst the darkness of homelessness:

A woman saved from suicide by her pet budgie; the true love of children and parents long lost; the unexpected love of strangers in the street; a baby born on the edge of homelessness; the love of learning to read and write; the enduring love of music.

These love stories form the basis of a new collaborative work with award-winning journalist and filmmaker Trent Dalton, director of photography David Kelly, internationally renowned guitarist Karin Schaupp, ARIA-nominated quintet Topology and the patrons and staff at Fortitude Valley's iconic 139 Club drop-in centre for Brisbane's homeless and at-risk.

Like love, the solution to homelessness in Australia will not be black and white.

A contemporary tribute to love, Love Stories reveals that amid the pain, loss, isolation and desperation on the streets there is often warmth and kindness and community and love.

Love Stories is not about providing solutions to the growing issue of homelessness in Australia. It's about adding colour to all that black and white.
