Carol Jerrems was the stills photographer for the 1978 Australian film In Search of Anna, directed by Esben Storm (1950-2011), who was Jerrems’ boyfriend at the time.

It is believed that this group of photographs, taken during the filming, are Carol Jerrems’ largest surviving colour photographs: the 14 images are of actors Judy Morris, Richard Moir, Chris Haywood, and Bill Hunter.

The following is a synopsis from Australian Screen: “Tony (Richard Moir) hits the road from Melbourne, hitching north in search of an old girlfriend. He has just done six years in Pentridge, during which his mother committed suicide. He has a dog named Billy, a sawn off shotgun in his bag and two big scars on his face, after a ‘reunion’ with Jerry Maquire (Chris Haywood), one of his old criminal mates. At a country town café, Tony gets a ride with Sam (Judy Morris), a fashionable young woman driving a 1938 Buick. They head to Sydney together but he resists getting involved. He wants to find Anna, the woman he thinks he still loves. Sam is unhappily involved with a Sydney fashion photographer (Bill Hunter). When Tony finds out Anna has moved to Queensland, Sam and Tony head north again in the Buick. When they eventually find where Anna lives, Tony realises he’s in love with Sam.”

The film was written and directed by Esben Storm who won a AACTA Award (1978 AFI Awards) for Best Original Screenplay; the film also got nominated for Best Film, Best Director, and Richard Moir for Best Actor.

It is interesting to note that artist Martin Sharp also appears in the film, in a small part playing “Eternity Man.”

This is the first time any of these photographs have been exhibited. A detailed list is available on request.

In Search of Anna can be purchased on DVD for $25 plus GST and shipping.
