Dir. Gillian Armstrong. 1979, 100 mins. DCP. With Judy Davis, Sam Neill, Wendy Hughes. An impudent and free-thinking young woman aspires to an artistic life in late-19th-century, drought-ridden rural Australia. Sent away by her family to earn her own living, she navigates her own path and cultivates her voice and desires. Based on Miles Franklin’s celebrated feminist book of the same name, this Australian New Wave classic launched the careers of actors Judy Davis and Sam Neill, as well as director Gillian Armstrong. It was also the first Australian dramatic feature film directed by a woman in 46 years, paving the way for a new generation of female voices.

Tickets: $15 / $11 senior and students / $9 youth (ages 3–17) / Free or discounted for MoMI members ($11 classic). Order tickets. Please pick up tickets at the Museum’s admissions desk upon arrival. All seating is general admission. Review safety protocols before your visit.
