The Screen Guide

A film about the life and work of Joy Hester, one of only a few women artists working in one of the most creative and pivotal eras of Australian art, the 1940s and 1950s. She was a striking and gifted painter and poet who, in the last ten years has become increasingly significant. Her life was short and sometimes tragic, and she received little recognition for her work during her lifetime.
