Jeff Lindsay in Conversation: Dark Tales, Serial Archetypes at ACMI

Event:
If you are a fan of the critically acclaimed television drama Dexter and the original crime novels, you cannot miss this just announced special event at The Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI); Dark Tales, Serial Archetypes featuring American playwright and novelist Jeff Lindsay, who is best known for the Dexter Series; Darkly Dreaming Dexter (2004), Dearly Devoted Dexter (2005), Dexter in the Dark (2007), Dexter by Design (2009) and Dexter is Delicious (2010). This event will occur on Friday, March 11 5:00pm - 8:00pm.

Copyright Showtime Networks, Inc., a division of CBS Corporation.


Lindsay will be in conversation with Dr. Sue Turnbull, who is well-known for her academic research of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer television series, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation television series and American author and screenwriter Thomas Harris - author of Red Dragon (1981), The Silence of the Lambs (1988), Hannibal (1999) and Hannibal Rising (2006). Having studied under Turnbull, I am sure both Lindsey and Turnbull, will be entertaining and insightful speakers, particularly considering the topic of conversation is the morally ambiguous protagonist of Dexter Morgan; a serial killer/vigilante.



This discussion will be followed by a Q&A with the audience and a book signing at the ACMI Store. If you have ever been to an ACMI event you will know you will have to purchase tickets fast! Priced at $20 - you can purchase your ticket now by calling (03) 8663 2583 or email fairytalesreimagined@acmi.net.au. For more details see here. Also book signings are popular events (just last week David Suzuki participated in a book signing), so you will need to be patient.



Also if you are interested in Dark Tales, Serial Archetypes, you may also be interested in ACMI's upcoming two-day symposium Fairy Tales Re-imagined. This is another great program of events exploring Charles Perrault fairytales and how these classic tales have been modernised and reworked for today's audiences - in literature, film and television.

It is also worth noting the Disney exhibition Dreams Come True: The Art of Disney's Classic Fairytales, at ACMI is closing on April 26 2011.
