A special screening of The Oyster Farmer will be hosted by the Bouddi Foundation for the Arts to raises funds to support young artists.
The 2004 fi lm, by Point Clare director Mr Anthony Buckley was shot on and around the Hawkesbury River including scenes at Wondabyne. The fi lm will run as part of the Bouddi Society’s Movies by the Bay program. It follows Jack Flange as he moves from the city to the Hawkesbury River, where he encounters the area’s rich oyster farming history and undergoes a journey of discovery.
The $25 ticket price includes Empire Bay oysterman Ferg’s local oysters, and a glass or two of Kincumber Block and Tackle stout or sparkling wine. The money raised will assist the Bouddi Foundation annual scholarships for young Peninsula artists. Tickets are available at Killcare Cellars in Hardys Bay, or Wagstaffe Store. The Oyster Farmer will be screened at Wagstaffe Hall on Sunday, April 30, at 1:30pm.
