MIFF Talks - Folk Heroes: Documenting Artists and Icons Unclassified 18+
A conversation with four filmmakers whose documentaries at this year’s festival spotlight an individual who has carved out an influential career amid their own personal and professional struggles. Featuring Cheryl Dunn (USA), whose film Moments Like This Never Last collates her own candid video documentation of the life of late artist Dash Snow with interviews; co-directors Richard Peete and Robert Yapkowitz (USA), who unearthed a treasure trove of archival material for Karen Dalton: In My Own Time, profiling the legendary but largely unsung titular folk singer; and Matthew Walker (Australia), who trails a renegade country music singer and Australia’s “Queen of Honky-Tonk” in I’m Wanita.
Presented in partnership with the University of Melbourne
