You may have wondered, but this film is nothing to do with rugby league! Sue Marshall's Frank and the Warriors is a biographical feature documentary about Frank Varsanyi, a New Zealand outsider artist who, for the last 30 years, has created the world’s largest collection of life-sized sculptured tribal warriors.
What possessed the man?
This film explores the answer to that question examining the life of a genuine free spirit: a man who has refused to live by any code other than an internal compass that has been largely oblivious to society's expectations.
Frank must negotiate a major turning point in his life, now over 60, he wants to break free for his final adventures but sadly he needs to let go to move on, his warriors must find a new home - no small endeavour!
Will he succeed in finding the freedom he craves? Or will his unconventional choices trip him up?
