Comedian Tim Ross, the creator of the award-winning ABC series Streets Of Your Town, turns his gaze to the footy-loving suburbs of his youth in a brilliant and incisive exploration of football, nostalgia and childhood through film, video, conversation and song at ACMI Cinemas in the week leading into the 2018 Grand Final.

Using personal anecdotes, and a hand-picked selection of archival images and footage from the riches of the ACMI Collection, And The Little People Fly will take audiences on a fabulous romp through Melbourne footy fans’ collective memories, from personally curated club duffle coats, the trading of football cards, and suburban clashes, to asphalt grazed Sherrins and more.

Joining Tim in conversation for this special live show is former Western Bulldogs great and renaissance man Bob Murphy, who has sat on both sides of the fence as a football fan and star player.
