DescriptionThis beautiful documentary uses the art of video to examine the working lives of some Western Australian Aboriginal women. Direct interviews are innovatively intercut with music, dance, still photography and symbolic imagery to create a sense of history juxtaposed with contemporary experience. While never losing sight of the ongoing struggle of Aboriginal women in Western Australia, the stories, struggles and successes expressed by the Aboriginal women interviewed celebrates their achievements along with the achievements of their ancestors.
