First-time Director, Catherine Dwyer, was inspired to make a film about the history of the Women’s Movement in Australia through her experience working as Post Production Producer and Researcher on Mary Dore’s critically acclaimed and award winning documentary She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry (2014) – the story of the US Women’s Liberation Movement. Catherine was the Impact Producer on Freedom Stories (dir. Steven Thomas 2016), a documentary that explores the achievements and stories of former ‘boat people’ who arrived in Australian waters seeking asylum. Catherine has also directed and edited music videos and shorts.
BRAZEN HUSSIES reveals a revolutionary chapter in Australian history, the Women’s Liberation Movement (1965 -1975). Interweaving freshly uncovered archival footage, personal photographs, memorabilia and lively personal accounts from activists, it shows us how a daring and diverse group of women joined forces to defy the status quo, demand equality and create profound social change – contributing to one of the greatest social movements of the 20th Century.
