The first ever documentary about of one of Australia's living legends - aboriginal boxer Lionel Rose - combines rare and wonderfully textured archival material with contemporary footage shot before Rose's recent stroke.

Eddie Martin has crafted a beautiful, often lyrical and always cinematic tribute that captures his subject's public and private personas.

The screening on Sat 4 Oct at 2pm will be followed by a Q&A with the director, while Martin's first short documentary Jisoe (56 mins, Australia, 2004) will screen with Lionel on Sat 11 Oct at 4pm.
