Sari Braithwaite

Professional Bio

Film-maker and historian Sari Braithwaite's documentary films have played at the Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide Film Festivals, the New Zealand International Film Festival, DocPoint and the British Film Institute in London. Her 2016 film Paper Trails about Anne Deveson, earned her a Directors Guild Award. She was a recipient of the 2015 AFTRS Creative Fellowship to create her first feature-length experimental work [CENSORED], which was awarded Best Documentary at the Chicago International Film Festival. [CENSORED] mined archival sources to investigate film scenes censored in Australia between 1958 and 1971. In Braithwaite's words, '... in creating this archive, what the censors accidentally created was a distilled catalogue of the destructive patriarchal imaginary.'
