The Long Weekend in Alice Springs

Craig San Roque and Joshua Santospirito

… a thrilling piece of narrative art - The Weekend Australian

The Long Weekend was first written for the Singer & Kimbles book The Cultural Complex, 2004.

This video of the graphic novel version captures the dreamlike feel of life inside a cultural complex.

Visual, raw and heated, Alice Springs is a town in the heart of aboriginal Australia, a place of creativity and disintegration where fractal forces of present trauma and ancient myth reincarnate and mingle like bread and wine.

Some places in the world incarnate deep histories, fierce tensions, fluid potential and good humour - the best of towns, the worst of towns.

For Australia, Alice Springs is such a place.
