Flix in the Wet

While the tropical monsoon drenches the outdoor Deckchair Cinema, you can still catch Darwin Film Society's expert programming at Flix in the Wet, on every Sunday afternoon from Jan 19 until the end of March.


This Flix opening film depicts the deeply affecting story of the Cuban dancer Carlos Acosta (Yuli), a legend in the dance world and the first black dancer to perform some of the world's most famous ballet roles.

From growing up on the streets to performing at London’s prestigious Royal Ballet, his story is told through an interweaving of dramatised storytelling and dance, with Acosta himself making an appearance.

Herbs: Songs of Freedom

The founders of Pacific reggae, Herbs, were one of New Zealand’s most important bands of the 80s, best known in Australia for ‘Slice of Heaven’, as well as protest songs such as ‘Nuclear Free Pacific’.

Though infectiously upbeat, Herbs’ music was always politically conscious. This funny and engaging documentary celebrates the iconic band in an emotional round of interviews, jams and memories, culminating in a moving reunion concert.
