Story: Paul, Joanna Margaret

Jillian dressing film

This film, made in 1976, is typical of the work of poet and artist Joanna Paul. Her focus was on the details of domestic life – a woman puts on and takes off various jerseys, the wind blows trees and the washing on the line, a child waits in a high chair for food, a man cuts wood with a chainsaw. All the action occurs in or near a colonial cottage. The film works like a form of cinematic 'still life'.
