Aussie Indies: The Witch of Kings Cross + Q&A

Concert or Performance

11 Jun 2021 Once Only Event

Their regular spotlight on recent highlights from the Australian independent filmmaking scene. 

The Witch of Kings Cross is a genre-bending documentary set in the occult subculture of 1950s Sydney. The film explores the life, work and beliefs of the most persecuted, prosecuted and daring female artist in Australian history – Rosaleen Norton.

Presented like a ‘rock doc’, it’s a collage of art, artefacts, archive, interview and expressionistic drama.

Tabloid tales of sex orgies, satanic rituals, bizarre deaths and the constant arrests don’t deter Rosaleen from her bohemian lifestyle. Instead, she takes control of the media by embracing the role of ‘the Witch’.

At the vanguard of feminism and the counter-culture revolution, Rosaleen Norton was persecuted for her sexuality and refusal to conform to Christian values.

Join them after the screening for a Q&A session with director Sonia Bible.
