It Is of Eden I Was Dreaming (1983)

This film is an evocation of the life of the 19th century French poet Arthur Rimbaud, based on a series of paintings by Sidney Nolan. Rimbaud was always one of Nolan’s heroes. Over the years he painted many pictures of the poet. The famous artist responded enthusiastically to a suggestion by an Australian scriptwriter for a film about Rimbaud and he produced 31 large new paintings for this film together with many small crayon drawings. These works, interwoven with a wealth of drawings paintings, photographs and documents from the Louvre, the French National Library and the Rimbaud Museum at Charleville, have been combined in a filmic evocation of one of France’s most extraordinary writers.
