HERETIC PICTURES PRESENTS



"This is not just a speech or a story, it is the most majestic kind of poetry. She is so passionate, so intense about everything she feels. I cried and laughed and felt all of life crumble and piece back together in these 80-odd minutes."

An unusual autobiographical documentary that lifts the lid on the mysterious life of Christina Conrad - painter, poet, sculptor & film-maker - whose life-long struggle with convention, prejudice, injustice and the art world's respectability, reminds us of our own personal dramas and the hidden strengths with which we confront and survive the risks and hazards of a world that is working overtime to make everyone the same. As Conrad unwraps the hidden personalities of her inner landscape, she gives her voice to the voiceless, to those that created in secret and died of of neglect. Here is a story so personal, so exact in its examination of one human's life it is capable of speaking to and on behalf of the lives of human beings everywhere.

Stoneking sez...


Reading through a lot of scripts, I'm never very sure who the story is aimed at. It's as if the thought of "who is this for" never crossed the writer's mind. And when I ask, who apart from yourself are you writing this for, they seldom know how to answer. The usual response, when there is one, is 'I'm writing for everyone', as if there was an approximate audience that was going to drop whatever it was doing to pay attention to someone's else's story simply because someone had taken the time to write it down on paper. The burden of not knowing who your story is for is a story killer. And it can't be remedied by glibly assigning a demographic to what you're writing. It has to be more personal than that, much more personal. You can't write the blood and the bone and the heart of a story if you're talking to shadows.  - Billy Marshall Stoneking
