The Hunter

  • LongPlay 318 St Georges Rd Fitzroy North, VIC, 3068 Australia (map)

Chart Collective presents The Hunter (2011), directed by Daniel Nettheim and starring Willem Dafoe, as the third film in our four-part series, Stories in Landscape; Landscape in Stories. Adapted from the 1999 book of the same name by Julia Leigh, The Hunter centres on a sinister search for the thylacine in the Tasmanian wilderness. 

The film will be introduced on the night by Rhianna Boyle, who has written the Nature column for The Lifted Brow since 2011, and whose work has been included in Best Australian Science Writing 2013. She has a Masters degree in zoology and currently works as a research assistant at the Centre for Aquatic Pollution Identification and Management at the University of Melbourne.

Our dear, talented friends at Market Lane Coffee have donated the very special prize of a three-month subscription to their coffee club to be given away on the night. See the details at All proceeds from the event will go towards funding Chart Collective.
