Today my guest is Jeni Thornley, a documentary filmmaker, writer and film valuer. Jeni’s poetic essay documentaries “Island Home Country”, “To the Other Shore”, “Maidens” and collaborative feature “For Love or Money” are landmark films in Australian independent and feminist cinema. Jeni is an Honorary Research Associate in the School of Communication, FASS, University of Technology, Sydney, where she lectured in documentary and completed her doctorate. In this episode we talk about Jeni’s ongoing relationship to film, beginning with her father's cinema exhibition business in 1950's/1960s Tasmania and Victoria, through to her current archival project, “memory=film” based on her super 8 collection, recently acquired and digitized by the National Film and Sound Archive. Jeni also shares her very personal approach to developing this film and the influence of the Japanese death poetry tradition on her process. twitter: @jenithornley Facebook: Issues in Documentary
