Looby: Film Screening and Q&A


A documentary on acclaimed and controversial painter Keith Looby, followed by a Q&A with the film’s producer and the artist.  

Loudhailer & Mama Dojo present a documentary film on the life and art of Keith Looby. Archibald Prize winner Keith Looby won major prizes at home and abroad. Yet today his name and works are rarely seen. With sumptuous cinematography, candid interviews and a striking original score, Looby uncovers the life and work of an artist we need to remember.

Following rave reviews at the 2019 Melbourne Documentary Film Festival and its Sydney premiere at the National Art School in February 2020, Looby is screening across Australia to mark 100 years of the Archibald Prize.
