The Sweet Country Stills Exhibition is a public art exhibition showcasing breathtaking behind the scenes photographs captured in Alice Springs by four stills photographers – Mark Rogers, Michael Corridore, Tamara Dean and Warwick Baker – during the shooting of the award-winning new Australian feature film Sweet Country.

It’s an intense period western set in the outback in 1929 and is helmed by the brilliant director Warwick Thornton (of Samson and Delilah fame). The exhibition features portraits of stars including Indigenous actors Hamilton Morris, Natassia Gorey-Furber, and twins Tremayne and Trevon Doolan, plus Bryan Brown and Sam Neill, amongst others. On display at OPEN at Darling Quarter on Monday 29 January until Sunday 25 February.

The Sweet Country Stills Exhibition is a partnership between BUNYA Productions and PHOTOPLAY, supported by the Screen Australia Indigenous Department and produced by aMBUSH Gallery.
