About the film
Marjorie Lawrence: The World at her Feet is the latest production by documentary film makers Wayne Groom and Dr Carolyn Bilsborow. Richard Davis' 2012 biography Wotan’s Daughter: the Life of Marjorie Lawrence inspired the directors to make the film which celebrates the career of the woman who 'was the most famous Australian woman in the world in the 1950s, but now has largely been forgotten,' according to Wayne.

About Wayne Groom and Dr Carolyn Bilsborow
Adelaide-based film-making duo Wayne Groom and Dr Carolyn Bilsborow are well known for making feature documentaries about forgotten people. Wayne Groom has been making feature films, television dramas and international documentaries for over 40 years for his company Australian International Pictures. Dr Carolyn Bilsborow is a filmmaker and Documentary lecturer at the University of South Australia.
Their 2018 work Missing Pieces helped add weight to the push for an exhumation of its subject, the so-called Somerton Man. Another film was Paris or the Bush – The Story of the (Murray) Cods which was about the men’s eight rowing crew that represented Australia at the 1924 Paris Olympics.
