Ruth Cullen will present her 2 acclaimed films about Vali Myers – “The Tightrope Dancer” and its sequel “Painted Lady” at a one off special screening at Melbourne’s  ACMI cinema.

“The Tightrope Dancer”  introduced Vali to Australian audiences and caused a sensation on its release.  it was made 5 years after Ruth first met Vali in Manhattan in 1984 and was widely praised for the intimacy in its portrayal.   Tightrope  was followed in 2002 by its sequel “Painted Lady” which followed Vali’s return to Australia.  Vali and Ruth remained close friends for the last 20 years of her life and Vali referred to her  as “my spirit sister”.

“Out of all the films,
The Tightrope Dancer’s the one that really got me”

– Vali Myers
