The eternity man ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Eternity Man is a film opera about Arthur Stace, a reformed petty criminal, World War 1 veteran and recovering alcoholic, who haunted Sydney's seedy bars and brothels until a revelation one night in a soup kitchen chapel. Stace then spent nearly 40 years chalking a timeless message on the city's streets: the single word - Eternity. Stace is the archetypal outsider in Sydney; unobtrusive, distracted, flung from freak-show to brothel to Baptist church, revealing the secrets a city likes to keep to itself through the autistic repetition of a single gesture. During his journey of self-discovery Stace wrote his word almost 500,000 times; it was his mission to traverse the city to its furthest reaches in order to spread his message. Now more than 30 years after his death, this mission has a powerful resonance, to the point where Sydney's millennium celebrations were crowned with his word lighting up the Harbour Bridge in neon, sending his evocative message out from Sydney and across the world"--Edited from ABC website
