Hilda depicts a feminine friendship in the early decades of the previous century. The film is set against a backdrop of the already diminishing Australian rainforest. As the day progresses we see the pair venture deeper into the vegetation, the more familiar of the two wielding an ageing plate camera.

Loosely drawn from the pioneering, though largely unknown, work of amateur naturalist Hilda Geissmann-Curtis (1890-1988), the ensuing images are reproductions of her studies of wild orchids.

Hilda explores the remoteness of the women’s new home in relation to their pursuit of creative acts. 

Other exhibitions on display during Artist's Journeys include Jean-Jacques Vaschalde Potter Craftsman: 40 Year Retrospective and The Black & White Braid: Roads, People, and Stories of the Scenic Rim by Ben Allmon & Carin Garland
