Anna is an independent artist, filmmaker, film studies scholar, and critic. She has PhD in queer and feminist film theory from The University of Sydney. Her thesis considers queer politics of happiness in a selection of contemporary auteur films. Anna has published on John Waters (2013) and Todd Solondz (2018) in Screen (Oxford University Press). Anna has worked as a director and writer for projects presented at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Performance Space, Dark Mofo, Perth Festival, Adelaide Festival, Weiwuying: National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts (Taiwan), Harbourfront Centre (Toronto), BAM (New York) and The Australian Centre for Contemporary Art. Anna is currently completing a manuscript on the queer politics of happiness. Collaborating extensively with Anna Breckon, the pair create works at the intersection of film and theatre, pushing the boundaries of each form. Randall’s history of performance art and theatre-making combines with Breckon’s history of filmmaking and academic film theory. Breckon and Randall work as writers, directors and performers on projects at a national and international scale.
