Lights, camera, action. After being closed for two years for a $40-million-dollar redevelopment, the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) has just reopened in Melbourne. In an enthralling permanent (and free) exhibition, you're led through video montages, past costumes and sets, to interactive areas that rewrite the rules on what a museum should be. After a year where we've spent so much time on the couch staring at a screen, it's nice to be reminded of what the moving image should be - a window into our world, not an escape door from it.
