Marti: The Passionate Eye is a tribute to the work of one of New Zealand’s greatest photographers, Marti Friedlander. After training in England Friedlander married a Kiwi and moved to Henderson, Auckland which she found fusty and conservative after her bohemian life in London. Photography allowed Marti to negotiate a relationship with New Zealand and her curious and questioning lens has provided a unique record of New Zealand lifestyles from the 1950’s onwards. The film is a very personal account of Marti’s life from early childhood, her introduction to photography and working life in London as a young, free-spirited woman, to the transition to life on the other side of the world.
Screened at Doc Edge Festival 2005
A tribute screening to Marti Friedlander – recipient of the 2016 Doc Edge Superhero award.
Director Shirley Horrocks will attend the screening in Auckland.
