Abstract:

This film reveals the many lives of flamboyant design pioneer, Florence Broadhurst. Born in outback Australia in 1899, Florence was a singer and dancer in Shanghai in the 20s and ran her own fashion boutique in London in the 30s before sweeping into Sydney society as a painter and charity queen. But it was in her last incarnation that she really made her mark, shaking up conservative Australia with her bold, exotic wallpaper designs. Now, with her prints in huge demand internationally, the times have finally caught up with this glamorous, complicated, unconventional woman, whose brutal murder in 1977 has never been solved.
