Nolan: The Man, The Myth

Nolan: The Man, The Myth

Available on DocPlay, Prime Video
Sidney Nolan is unquestionably one of the best- known names in the history of modern Australian art. His images are iconic, treasures of the Australian visual language. This film - told through the artist's own words - will challenge the existing narrative around the man who gave us the Ned Kelly series, among thousands of others. Delving into previously unknown and unseen elements of his work, inspiration and private life, with a particular focus on his artistic life in the UK (where he lived for half of his life), the film provides a thorough and compelling exploration of how and why an outsider - an artist who, through his work, became synonymous with Australia and its myths and legends - became the ultimate establishment figure, through the use of never-before-seen archive and interviews with family and friends, some of whom have never spoken on camera before.
