The film about the artist forgotten in Australia and feted in France

One of the most controversial Australian artists of the 80’s, avant-garde, poet and dramaturge, Christopher Barnett turned the literary and theatre worlds on their heads, and then abruptly left for France where he has lived for the past 20 years and where he has won many followers and admirers including the current prime minister.

With project development assistance from Screen Australia, South Australian Film Corporation and Screen NSW, I saw an urgent need to go immediately to France and start making a documentary that rediscovers the work of this significant Australian, giving him his due recognition as one of our great artists.  We have some French finance and a French broadcaster on board  to be able to return to France to continue shooting.   However, we need to raise the finance to shoot and post the Australian content.   We are asking your support to assist us reach our target of $25K.   We’re so close but only with your support we can make this happen!
