Film No.4 - Sat 9 June, 5 – 7pm

JANET LAURENCE ‘THE LIFE WORLD’ & WENDY SHARPE ‘ANNETTE KELLERMAN’

Two films about two of Australia’s best known female artists. The first film about Janet Laurence was filmed over 5 years and presents a fascinating insight into her work practice. She is both artist and alchemist, initiating and creating major installations that have transformed our cities and given new meaning to the words 'Public Art'. In the second film, Wendy Sharpe paints the amazing life of Australia’s legendary swimmer Annette Kellerman who became a trailblazer for the ‘new woman’ in the early 1900s.
