We are delighted to screen Blandine Massiet du Biest’s debut feature film exploring the life and art of celebrated New Zealand painter Frances Hodgkins.

Spending much of her life and career in Europe, Hodgkins was a modernist painter whose work continues to inspire contemporary New Zealand artists. The film retraces Hodgkins’ footsteps, taking viewers to the places she lived and worked, and shedding light on the challenges she faced and her unwavering commitment to her craft. Featuring insights from experts like Mary Kisler, Linda Tyler, Joanne Drayton and Jonathan Gooderham, as well as creatives such as Kate Sylvester and Star Gossage, the film celebrates Hodgkins’ courage and determination as a pioneering woman in the arts, and her enduring legacy as a role model for women everywhere.
