Renowned New Zealand painter Rita Angus lived and worked at a time when to be a full time artist was unusual and hardly considered a serious occupation. Preston explores a colourful collection of friends and family who knew and loved Rita, while biographer Jill Trevelyan provides a fresh intelligence on the Rita Angus life story. A wealth of letters from Rita to Douglas Lilburn, re-enacted on screen by Loren Taylor, form a moving personal commentary. 

'A lively and loving look at one of our cultural icons.' - ANGELA WALKER, SUNDAY STAR TIMES.
