Eternity was an international festival favourite on its initial release, winning the Los Angeles Documentary Festival’s prestigious Award for Best Documentary Feature Film, among many others.
‘Eternity’ was the word that seemed to appear magically overnight in perfect copperplate script across the sidewalks of Sydney for over 40 years, starting in the 1930s. The film tells the mysterious and heartbreaking story of Arthur Stace, one of Australia’s first graffiti artists.
Known to many as ‘Mr Eternity’, he became an icon in Sydney and influenced many with his use of this powerful word. It is estimated he wrote ‘Eternity’ over half a million times before his death in 1967.
