Robin Kewell Film Night - Journey to the Isles of Despair

The second film in our Robin Kewell series of short films and talks will be screened on the Top Floor of Lopdell House and features Journey to the Isles of Despair. The film documents Robin and his New Zealand wife Ruth's trip by yacht to one of the remotest places on the planet where many did not survive and man's occupation was brief and desperate, the Auckland Islands. The evening will also include an exhibition of artist Sandra Morris' work produced on the trip.

Top Floor of Lopdell House.

Entry $10 or $5 for Friends of Lopdell House Gallery.
