About the film
“Alick and Albert” retraces the relationship and exchanges between HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco and the Australian artist Alick Tipoti. They developed an unlikely friendship on the occasion of the exhibition “Taba Naba: Australia, Oceania, arts of the peoples of the sea” at the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco in 2016 and the meetings that followed on Badu Island, in the Torres Strait in northern Australia in 2018, as part of a Monaco Explorations expedition, and in Monaco again in 2019.
Directed by Douglas Watkin and produced by Trish Lake and Meredith Garlick, the film was previewed at the Rencontres internationales du cinema des antipodes in Saint-Tropez (France) and had its Australian premiere at the Brisbane International Film Festival (Australia). It will be presented in competition at the upcoming Tahitian International Documentary Film Festival.
