Stories of bravery and sacrifice connect the two vastly different experiences at NFSA. Martin Wesley-Smith’s audio-visual works, inspired by the people and experiences of East-Timor through the 80s and 90s represent one of the finest examples of audio-visual art in the world. In the Theatrette Alice Giles recounts her voyage to Antarctica –  with a harp!
