Sheila Natusch was no ordinary
writer, illustrator, historian, naturalist, sailor, cyclist, mountain woman
She was also a strong character, with a warm and witty personality, who made light of her many successes and setbacks over a long career of telling New Zealand stories in words and drawings, and getting out in the mountains and on the sea to experience the exhilaration of the 'wild life' to the full.
No Ordinary Sheila was first released in the New Zealand International Film Festival 2017, and screened in 13 towns and cities between August 3 and September 24. It was one of the most popular films in the Festival. It goes on general release in cinemas around New Zealand from Thursday October 19.
