Isla Roberts is an 87-year-old carriage driving legend. She defies labels and in particular refuses the label Lesbian.

"I'm not a Lesbian, I'm Isla Roberts...But she is!" Isla says of Susan her lesbian partner of 40 years.

Susan hopes that the sharing of Isla's story will be a marvelous antidote to the invisibility of older lesbian women. Isla and Susan live together in the Adelaide Hills with two ponies and a dog. Over the course of one year, Isla returns to her remote rural home of her younger years, attends her grandson's farm wedding, welcomes the arrival of new great-grandchildren and fights to keep carriage driving. Isla's Way is the story of an extraordinary woman who has lived an inspiring life.

Director: Marion Pilowsky, Australia, 2023, 83 minutes, English, Unclassified 15+
