Leonard’s Beautiful Pictures

A rare vision of a former world, drenched in hand-tinted colour and laughter.

In the family of Launceston entertainers known as The Marvellous Corricks there were eight talented siblings: seven sisters and their brother, Leonard. He was just 14 years old when he started making and screening silent films.

It was 1901 and his early projections – a highlight of his family’s travelling shows filled with sketches and singalongs – would light up the world.

Paying homage to The Marvellous Corricks’ musical talents, renowned Tasmanian composer and performer Dean Stevenson and his band accompany these moving pictures with a playful new musical soundscape.

Bring your family and welcome Leonard’s Beautiful Pictures into the 21st century.

Supported by Ten Days on the Island and the National Film and Sound Archive

Presented by the National Film and Sound Archive Digital Restoration Program – NFSA Restores – Reviving Australia’s cinema icons.
