Sun Theatre’s owner Michael Smith added, “I was lucky to be at the premiere of Dancing the Invisible, and had always admired the role of editing in creating great films, but seeing the artistry behind Jills work I was so inspired, that as soon as I got home I sat up late watching Bazs Romeo + Juliet. So we thought – lets do this on the big screen – and All About Jill seemed like a great weekend!

All About Jill is on at Yarravilles Sun Theatre from Friday 2 November to Monday 5 November, 2018.
