The TCL Studio transformed last month to host the screening of Visiting Hours, a short film by Kasimir Burgess, the first recipient of the Kevin Taylor Legacy – Creative in Residence.
Kas had the opportunity during his residency to film the cartoonist, Michael Leunig while visiting a hospice where his childhood school teacher Joan lived. Joan was one of the few people to have faith in Michael as a child and to support and further his creativity.
In this short film Kas sculpts each scene into a powerful portrait which captures an inspiring old friendship and the mutual affections and understanding between Michael and Joan.
Visiting Hours forms part of a larger film by Kasimir Burgess on Michael Leunig’s life set to be released in 2016.
