Meet The Wallers

Filmed over 20 years, Meet The Wallers is a remarkable peek through the keyhole into family life; a meditation on art, mortality, philanthropy, and happiness.

Mark Waller paints the beautiful Lennox Head. He is a dreamer who sees angels in the street and wants to give away what little his paintings earn. His vivacious wife Nicole wishes she were the charity, but Mark can’t see Nicole’s creeping depression as his paintings don’t sell and the bills keep coming. Daughters Jasmine and Emily – babies at the outset and graduates by story’s end – navigate this desperation and their own sibling rivalries.

When Mark finally achieves success, overnight tragedy changes everything, and the fault lines in the Waller family erupt with surprising results that make their story an uplifting, universal revelation.

There will be a Q&A after the film with Mark and Nicole Waller and director, Jim Stevens.

Friday 5 August, 7pm at Byron Theatre. Bookings at byrontheatre.com.
