Free movie – For The Term Of His Natural Life

Hawkesbury Library Service will screen For The Term Of His Natural Life on Thursday, 29 September at 10am and again at 6pm, courtesy of the National Film and Sound Archive.

Based on the Australian classic by Marcus Clarke, the movie follows the journey of a convict who has been wrongfully accused of a crime he did not commit, and sent to the harsh penal colony of Van Diemen’s Land, Australia where he tries to escape. This restoration has been put together from what remains of the original Australian release print.

The movie will be shown in the Tebbutt Room, Hawkesbury Central Library, Deerubbin Centre, 300 George Street Windsor and runs for 101 minutes. Refreshments will be available before the screenings and everyone is welcome to bring along snacks and drinks to enjoy during the film.

Bookings are essential, call (02) 4560 4460 or email programs@hawkesbury.nsw.gov.au with your name(s), contact number and which session you would like to attend. This film has a classified rating of G. Children under the age of 15 must be accompanied by an adult. Suitability for viewing is at the discretion of the parent/carer.
