Completed in 2023, Memory Film represents three decades of activism and film production by Australian filmmaker Jeni Thornley based on substantial Super 8 archive (19742003), including content captured while producing MaidensTo the Other ShoreIsland Home Country and the collaborative feature For Love or Money 
 
Poetic and immersive, Memory Film explores the dynamic politics of womens liberation and historical periods of intense social change. This unique film also documents an inner journey of liberation, traversing gender fluidity, love and its tribulations, the pleasure and pain of motherhood, violence against women, and the desire for a world free of war and colonisation.
