Things Will Be Different documents two neighbours’ experiences of displacement as they are forced to relocate from the Walker Street public housing estate in Northcote, Melbourne when it is sold for private redevelopment. The film explores the impact of losing one’s home and the important role public housing plays in our communities.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with director Lucie McMahon, producer Emmett Aldred, and cinematographer Celeste de Clario.

Crew Night

Before the screening, from 6pm, you can mingle, connect and talk film with fellow cinephiles, creatives and industry folks at the ACMI Cafe + Bar. Find out more about Crew Nights.
