Dir. Corinne Cantrill. 1984, 147 mins. HD file. Corinne Cantrill, who works with her husband Arthur Cantrill, is one of Australia’s most committed and prolific experimental filmmakers. This brilliantly constructed and questioning autobiography covers the years 1928–1984, using a tapestry of photographs and a handful of moving image clips, centering the emotions and memories they elicit. The film recounts a passionate life of travel, friendships, romance, and artistic exploration, while also interrogating Cantrill’s own family background and heritage. Says filmmaker Margot Nash, “Corinne has lived the passionate and unconventional life of an artist, and tells her story with intelligence, complexity and (at times) a refreshing uncertainty.”
