A PORTRAIT OF LOVE
2ND SCREENING: SAT 9 MARCH
Thursday 7 March | 7:30PM | A&I Hall
Australia | 2024 | 90 mins
For over 20 years, Archibald Prize-winning artist Craig Ruddy and his partner Roberto Meza Mont filmed their life together to share with friends, fans and family.
They documented events big and small, from celebrations and travel to the inner workings of a significant artist, illustrating a vibrant, joyous life that was filled with love.
To tell their story, their friend, documentary-maker Molly Reynolds (My Name is Gulpilil), spent months immersed in Roberto’s footage and crafted her most intimate film to date.
An extraordinary insight into a prolific artist and the relationship that inspired him, the film is a rich and spirited portrait of life, love, and loss that draws you into its open embrace.
Produced by Molly Reynolds and Rolf de Heer.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the director Molly Reynolds, Roberto Meza Mont, hosted by Angus McDonald.
