Dancing to His Song is a comprehensive review of the work of Rolf de Heer, Australia's acknowledged auteur, an individual filmmaker famed for never repeating himself. Examining each film individually, Jane Freebury searches for the sources of de Heer's inspiration and finds the secret of his success in an ethic of hard work, flexibility and self-reliance that meets challenges and obstacles with ingenuity and keeps a steady focus in his vision. His remarkable career as an independent filmmaker has much to teach young producers and directors.

Jane Freebury is a film critic and freelance writer. She has a Masters and Postgraduate Diploma in Film Studies from the University of Westminister, London, and has taught cinema studies in several tertiary institutions. She was lecturer in cinema and cultural studies at the University of Wollongong 1990–93. A personal interest turned professional in 1987 when, on returning to Australia she was invited to write a column on the Australian film industry by Australian Society magazine, a national affairs monthly of the time. This sparked her interest in the work of Rolf de Heer. From 1988–93 she was a regular columnist for the magazine. Since then her work has appeared in the journals Metro, Metro Education, Black & White and Filmnews. While living in Indonesia in the mid-1990s she contributed on film and local filmmakers to the English-language newspaper, the Jakarta Post. After settling in Canberra in 1997 she became a full-time writer and has since been employed as a ministerial speechwriter for the Australian Government, while she maintained her freelance role. She has been a regular contributor of interviews, reviews and features on film to the Canberra Times since 1997.
