Anne Deveson was a magnificent woman: the first female talk-back broadcaster in Australia, she was also a writer, activist, mental health advocate, and mother. When Director Sari Braithwaite met Anne in 2015, she offered to help transform the 85-year paper trail of Anne’s life into a mountain of neatly stacked brown boxes to hand over to the National Library of Australia. But during this six-month period, Anne’s brain starts to fail her. Alzheimer’s, the illness that took her mother and grandmother, is gaining hold. As Anne seeks to make sense of her life through the archives, she discovers that the storylines she’s trying to piece together are becoming harder and harder to find.
