From writer and director Jocelyn Moorhouse (The Dressmaker) comes a beautiful memoir about movies, motherhood and raising children with autism. In the midst of a promising career in movies, Jocelyn gave up her work to care for her two children diagnosed with autism.
Jocelyn Moorhouse will be in conversation with Alex Sloan, and sign copies of her new book after the talk, available for purchase on the day by Harry Hartog Bookshop.
The session includes a screening of Moorhouse’s The Dressmaker at 7.15pm. The Dressmaker Costume Exhibition will be open until 6pm on the night.
‘Jocelyn Moorhouse returns to the director’s chair with a wiggle dress and a powder keg after almost two decades for The Dressmaker – a loud, batty, fancy-frocked, sashed-and-stockinged revenge story pitched somewhere between an outback period piece and a Wile E Coyote cartoon’ – The Guardian
