BRILLIANT ARTIST FILMS
SALVATORE ZOFREA – Master of Light tells the life story of one of Australia’s great painters. His journey has taken him from war torn Italy as a child to his search for a new life in Australia. From his studios in Sydney and the Blue Mountains to his birthplace in Southern Italy, we follow Salvatore’s story as he creates ‘Morning Light’ a monumental artwork, 100 ft long reminiscent of Monet’s panoramas that he did at the end of his life’.
A film by award winning film-maker Richard Mordaunt
BRUCE GOOLD – The life and art of Bruce Goold – Under the Lino
Bruce Goold is another of Australia’s greatest living artists. His life is a fascinating journey that has take him from the Yellow House in Sydney, to exhibitions in Ireland and London, book cover designs all around the world and thousands and thousands of lino cut art pictures.

This is a film full of humour and eccentric art.
