‘Eternity’ immortalised in film celebrating WWI veteran
90 years since the famous handwritten word, ‘Eternity’, was first written on the footpath by a WWI veteran, the story is being celebrated.
Arthur Stace wrote this word 500,000 times on footpaths throughout Sydney in the 1930-1960s, sparking a media hunt to discover who was behind it.
His handwriting was featured on the Sydney Harbour Bridge during the Millennium fireworks, and will now grace the screens in new film Written in Chalk: the echo of Arthur Stace.
Director Richard Attieh told Deborah Knight Stace was inspired by a fellow veteran.
“He ended up capturing the imagination of Sydney.”
