Sylvia ( Visual )
4 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 15 libraries worldwide
This is a dramatisation based on two autobiographical novels by Sylvia Ashton-Warner who developed a liberated approach to teaching young, illiterate, mainly Maori pupils. In doing so she comes up against the male educational bureaucracy and an educational system based on teaching methods which she rejects as 'cultural imperialism'. Nine years in the novels, spent in several New Zealand locations, are compressed into a few months in a small, country town in the early 1940s. This film is both a classroom drama and an emotional story about a young woman who is coming to terms with an overwhelming sense of isolation in a society that largely rejects the artist.

The change is dramatic. Strange neighbours unnerve her; strange sounds surround her, tales of the cottage's dark past haunt her and an unseen tormentor plagues her day and night.
