The Story of Rosy Dock

Australia, 1995 (MIFF 1995, Environmental Programme)

Director: Jeannie Baker

The beautiful imagery of artist Jeannie Baker ani­mates The Story of Rosy Dock, the tale of an elderly woman who sets up home in the central Aus­tralian desert. In her attempt to recreate the beauty she has left, she fails to recognise the beauty which was already there. This intricately textured animation delivers a powerful message about how the earth's delicately balanced envi­ronment is continually being threatened by human interference.
