A por­trait of love, life and loss

RENOWNED West Aus­tralian artist Leon Per­i­cles em­barks on his big­gest chal­lenge yet — a ret­ro­spec­tive ex­hi­bi­tion of his life’s works — while wit­ness­ing the in­creas­ing men­tal de­cline of his wife and col­lab­o­ra­tor Moira (both pic­tured) as Alzheimer’s disease turns their world up­side down.

A mas­ter pain­ter and print­maker, Per­i­cles’ work is held in all Aus­tralian state gal­leries, the Na­tional Gallery and pri­vate col­lec­tions around the world, but he would never have achieved this level of suc­cess with­out his great­est sup­porter by his side.

Told through the eyes of their daughter Nia, this up­lift­ing, raw and emo­tion­ally en­gag­ing doc­u­men­tary ex­plores love, life and loss.
