Slim and I

For more than 50 years, country music legend Slim Dusty and his wife, Joy McKean, trail-blazed their way across Australia, creating a musical legacy that continues to entertain and inspire. Theirs is perhaps one of the greatest partnerships in Australian music history. 

Slim & I is a feature documentary that tells the incredible story of that partnership and of the quiet feminist who lived beside, rather than behind, the legend – Australia’s own ‘Queen of Country Music’, Joy McKean.


"This is pure joy, in more ways than one." - SYDNEY MORNING HERALD


"This fast moving, insightful and always entertaining film is firmly a tribute to Joy, and rightly so: if Slim Dusty was 'the man who is Australia', she was the woman who made the man." - SCREEN HUB
