A Portrait of Love

Australian Showcase
Book Tix!

A joyful celebration of the life and loss of Archibald award-winning artist Craig Ruddy, told through the eyes of his loving partner of twenty years.

This moving documentary goes behind the scenes of his life with his partner Roberto Meza Mont, in their home and studio in the Northern Rivers, to capture the spirit of the man and artist. Directed by Molly Reynolds (My Name is Gulpilil), utilising footage captured by Roberto throughout the decades, we see Craig Ruddy in all aspects of his life – preparing for exhibitions, painting his most famous portraits and dancing his way through life. An incredible portrait of a creative powerhouse and an exuberant celebration of love.
