“This hat was one of my first magician’s props, a collapsible top hat. When I bought it, it was probably twenty years old, and I got it in 1955 or 1956 and it still operates. It’s a collapsible!” – Steve Martin | 

In Citizen Kane a journalist attempts to uncover the meaning of the media tycoon’s last word before dying, “rosebud”. It turns out to be Kane’s childhood sled. All of us have meaningful objects we carry through our lives, objects that tell a story about who we are and who we aspire to be, objects that mean little to anyone else but signify the world to us.

Los Angeles-based Australian photographer Hugh Hamilton brings to the Sydney Film Festival a series of striking portraits of such objects, along with their owners – a gallery of the brightest talents of the film world.

From Steve Martin’s collapsible top hat to Anthony LaPaglia’s first professional football jersey, the Rosebud exhibition takes us into the private lives of cinema’s great actors and storytellers.
