A short documentary about pioneering oral historian Wendy Lowenstein and her involvement in the Australian folk music scene will be available for free viewing in a webinar on 8 October 2023.
The 25-minute documentary ‘What Wendy found’ was produced by her children Martie and Richard Lowenstein. They are currently fundraising with a view to turning the documentary into a feature film. Wendy Lowenstein recorded interviews with over 800 everyday people from around Australia over a period of 40 years from 1965. Her interviewees told her of their struggles to obtain better working and living conditions. She not only recorded their stories but wrote about them in several books. Find out more here.
