The Witch of Kings Cross - A revealing portrait of an artist

The feature documentary about the bohemian artist, Rosaleen Norton, had its world Premiere in Paris in September 2020 at L’Etrange Festival to a sold-out cinema and rave reviews. Written and directed by internationally award-winning filmmaker Sonia Bible, the film was made independently over seven years. 
 
Rosaleen Norton scandalized 1950s Australia with her occult art and kinky sex life, but today her work seems strangely prophetic. Told ‘in her own words’, the film weaves stylized drama and erotic dancers with rare, never before seen artworks, diaries and scrapbooks.  The Witch of Kings Cross is the fascinating portrait of a fearless woman outlaw railing against fearful conservative forces and an insight into the work of an uncelebrated genius.

The film had its Australian Premiere in Sydney at a special presentation by MonsterFest in the first week of November, followed by an encore screening at the Sydney Women’s International Film festival in late November.
