Our 'The Western' program at the Australian Cinémathèque, GOMA offers a rare opportunity to see these films presented on the big screen as they were intended, and features many 35mm prints sourced from film archives around the world and screened in one of Australia’s last 35mm film venues.

>High Noon
A small Western town fearfully awaits the arrival of a pardoned criminal who has vowed revenge on retired sheriff Will (Gary Copper). But, in deference to his new Quaker wife Amy (Grace Kelly) Will has hung up his guns on the one day he needs them. Torn between the need to defend himself, the deadly indifference of the townsfolk and the deep reserves of his wife's moral strength, Will and those around him are inexorably dragged toward a painful climax.

>Seven Samurai
A staple of nearly every top-ten film list ever made, Seven Samurai has a surprisingly familiar plot: a handful of stranger's band together to protect helpless farmers from bandits. Often imitated, it's still unmatched, and seeing it on the big screen shows why: the controlled chaos and limitless roar of the battle scenes, mixed with the minutest details, like a field of flowers glowing in the afternoon sun or mist settling in a forest.
