Leonard’s beautiful pictures

Ten Days on the Island in association with the National Film and Sound Archive Australia (NFSA)

In the family of 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. 
in 2021, Leonard’s Beautiful Pictures premiered in Zeehan for the Ten Days on the Island Festival.  Now these 100-year-old films will once again entertain and delight audiences in the North West. Paying homage to the Marvellous Corricks’ musical talents, renowned Tasmanian composer and preformer Dean Stevenson and his band will accompany these moving pictures with a playful new musical soundscape.
