Saturday Screenings is a free program of film screenings presented monthly in partnership with the National Gallery of Australia. 

Come along to the NFSA for a free screening of American psychological horror Hereditary (2018), with an introduction by First Nations artist and filmmaker Hayley Millar Baker.   

Hayley Millar Baker, Gunditjmara and Djabwurrung peoples, is featured in the National Gallery of Australia’s 4th National Indigenous Art Triennial Ceremony with her short film Nyctinasty (2021).  

Nyctinasty is a fictional narrative that builds upon the artist’s lived experience of connection to spirits and Ancestors. Shot in black-and-white, it draws on the cinematic vocabulary of horror films.   

Hereditary, written and directed by Ari Aster, unleashes a nightmare vision of a domestic breakdown, transforming a familial tragedy into something ominous and deeply disquieting. Anchored by a towering performance from Toni Collette, Hereditary pushes the horror movie into chilling new terrain with its shattering portrait of heritage gone to hell.  

The screening of Hereditary will be preceded by Hayley Millar Baker’s short film Nyctinasty (2021).
