A CINEMA EVENT FOR ALL ART LOVERS
The life and art of two of Australia’s great artists
SALVATORE ZOFREA – Master of Light tells the life story of one of Australia’s great painters. His journey has taken him from war torn Italy as a child to his search for a new life in Australia. From his studios in Sydney and the Blue Mountains to his birthplace in Southern Italy, we follow Salvatore’s story as he creates ‘Morning Light’ a monumental artwork, 100 foot long reminiscent of Monet’s panoramas that he did at the end of his life.
A film by award winning film-maker Richard Mordaunt
