The Syron’s Call

Gordon Syron is an Aboriginal artist who learned to paint while he was in prison serving a life sentence for murder. Now in his 70s, he and his wife, photographer Elaine Perot Syron, have collected art from significant artists over the last decades. They dream of establishing a Keeping Place for their important collection. This short film looks at the personal cost of this dream on both Gordon and Elaine.
