Rose Murray is a self-made photographer who describes her motivation, style, and methods in this film. Through the techniques of split-screen and photo montage combined with un-staged interviews, we are presented with images of an independent woman artist, continuing to produce vital works in the golden years of her life. Rose's work takes us back through the years for a fascinating view o
