George Gittoes will screen and discuss excerpts from his remarkable new film ‚The Miscreants' which engages some of the protagonists- including Gittoes himself- fighting the war over culture in the lands which harbour Osama bin Laden.

George Gittoes has worked from mobile studios around the world for over 20 years. First known as a figurative painter in the tradition of Dix and Kollwitz, Gittoes' more recent film work has been seen by millions through the medium of MTV. As an artist who is ‚at war with war', he often travels to forbidden zones - places closed to the public and the media gaze - to bring his unorthodox vision to bear on the machinations behind the conflicts he documents. He gives a unique and searing view of the currents of change, and rare insights into cultural collision, as we have emerged into the 21st Century. Taking a global approach to his work as an artist, Gittoes works from many locations throughout the world, and bases himself in studios in Sydney and New York.
