No Ordinary Sheila

The life story of this nonagenarian natural historian, illustrator and writer is a beautiful, truly Antipodean journey.

Growing up in the deep south led Sheila Natusch to an adventurous resilience which saw her climb multiple mountains, cycle from Picton to Bluff (look it up on Google Maps!) and write dozens of ground-breaking natural history books, including her magnum opus, Animals of New Zealand.

Featuring beautiful historic footage of the lower south in the 30s and 40s, this film offers fascinating glimpses into life as one of few female students at Otago University.

Viewers will love this radiant, defiant and unconventional life story which ranges from the southern wilds to the rugged Wellington coastline, where Sheila still lived until very recently, without a car, TV, lipstick or alcohol, planning to ‘get the last bit of fun out of life that there is’.
