Blaze, a feature-length movie by Del Kathryn Barton

A courageous performance by Julia Savage in Del Kathryn Barton's 'Blaze'. 12-year-old Blaze witnesses a brutal sexual assault that leads to her own crisis framed by fear and powerlessness.
Alone in her bedroom, Blaze is rescued by her own imagination, bringing to life an inner self, a fantastic dragon and an entire army to stand behind her.
Puppetry and stop-motion animation combine with live action to take us into a world that is both Blaze's and Del's, fantasy and reality, and a celebration of the power of the imagination.
Premiered at the 2022 Sydney Film Festival, Blaze is a major achievement by Del Kathryn Barton.
Be quick is you want one of the few remaining copies of Del Kathryn Barton – the definitive book on this artist.
