Slim & I - film
SLIM & I • 1h 45m
For more than 50 years, country music legend Slim Dusty and his wife, Joy McKean, trail-blazed their way across Australia, creating a musical legacy that continues to entertain and inspire to this day. Theirs is perhaps one of the greatest partnerships in Australian music history.
Directed by Kriv Stenders (Red, Dog, The Go-Betweens: Right Here) Slim & I is a feature documentary that tells the incredible story of that partnership and of the quiet feminist who lived beside, rather than behind, the legend – Australia’s own ‘Queen of Country Music’, Joy McKean.
Slim & I won the Best Australian Film Award at the Gold Coast Film Festival, 2020.
