In March 2013, John Olsen, one of Australiaís greatest living artists, embarked on the second largest mural of his career. He was 85 years old.
In The King Sun, director Tony Williams and producer Anna Hewgill follow the progress of John Olsenís mural from the arrival of the 8 blank panels to the transportation, delivery and installation of the giant painting in the Collins Square development in Melbourne.
The film is a record of a great Australian at work on possibly his final mural. Itís also an uplifting exploration of a life in art, and a reflection on mortality, optimism and happiness.
