Description Vera, tape recorder in hand, enters the reclusive artist's home. She is intent on getting the definitive account of Hilda's life and times. But how to get the octogenarian artist to reveal salient facts not only about her own history but also about her fellow artists, their personal lives and their art as Modernism arrived in Melbourne? Vera tries to pin down Hilda but everything about Hilda resists and rejects Vera’s classifications. A struggle begins and both women play with each other, sometimes cruelly, creating a tension between what is revealed and what is hidden.
