THE FINAL HOURS  

To mark the third anniversary of Myuran Sukumaran’s death and the conclusion of Another Day in Paradise, Tuggeranong Arts Centre has invited artists to participate in a creative vigil. On Sunday 29th April the Centre’s galleries, workshop, and rehearsal spaces will be filled with artists responding to Sukumaran’s story and his final series of paintings.
The day will culminate with the Canberra premiere screening of GUILTY, a hybrid feature film by Maggie Miles and Matthew Sleeth that takes audiences into the final 72 hours of Sukumaran's life.

‘During the 72 hours [prior] to his execution, Myuran painted prolifically, producing some of his most powerful work... In this series, produced under the most difficult circumstances, we see potent and emotional images of the man Myuran had become – determined, focused, talented and brave; looking unflinchingly toward the next painting, and the legacy that would survive his execution: his art.’ – Campbelltown Arts Centre
