The Witch of Kings Cross

Portrait of fearless painter Rosaleen Norton, who specialised in occult themes and expressions of sexuality in the face of conservative 1950s Australia.

In 1950s Sydney, bohemian artist Rosaleen Norton hits the headlines with allegations of satanic rituals, obscene art and sex orgies. She worships the God Pan, and practices trances and sex magic, inspired by the work of Aleister Crowley. Eventually the relentless scandals lead to the downfall of her high society lover, Sir Eugene Goossens. Told 'in her own words', the film weaves stylized drama and erotic dancers with never before seen artworks, diaries and scrapbooks.
