British artist Tacita Dean will introduce a screening of her film The Uncles.

Renowned for her photographs and 16mm film installations, Dean is related by birth and marriage to two of Britain's most important cinema pioneers, Basil Dean and Michael Balcon, who ran the celebrated film studios at Ealing.

In 2003, Dean filmed her uncles - Basil Dean's eldest son, Winton, and Balcon's only son, Jonathan, - as they discussed film and family with Laurence Kardish, Senior Curator at the Museum of Modern Art, New York.

Presented by ACMI and the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art.
