Legendary Australian artist Del Kathryn Barton's feature film debut is a masterpiece of catharsis

There is an extraordinary moment of catharsis at the heart of Archibald Prize-winning artist Del Kathryn Barton’s emotionally confronting but ultimately mesmeric debut feature Blaze. Filmed in her hometown of Sydney, it stars an incredible Julia Savage as the eponymous twelve-year-old protagonist. Her visually arresting interior life – lushly recreating Barton’s fantastical artwork via a combination of stop-animation and puppetry inserted into the live-action – is torn apart after she witnesses a brutal attack.
