Melting into Air is coming to the Australian Cinémathèque at GOMA this month!

Presented in conjunction with GOMA’s blockbuster ‘Air’ exhibition (l4`), ‘Melting into Air’ explores cinematic representations of this essential element.

‘Melting into Air’ illustrates the possibilities – and impossibilities – of capturing air on screen. These films consider the environmental consequences of mass industrialisation and the sublime potential of natural phenomena, humanity’s dreams of taking to the skies and the exquisite mechanics of respiration, the hidden mysteries within deep fogs and the transformative power of the invisible world around us.



This cinema program brings together films from around the world and across the decades. It includes screenings of rare 16mm and 35mm prints, as well as new digital restorations and Live Music & Film events, in a major cinematic survey.
