DescriptionNICE COLOURED GIRLS is a stylised experimental drama exploring attitudes of Aboriginal women to white men and vice versa. By locating these attitudes in both an historical and contemporary context NICE COLOURED GIRLS makes a strong statement about the oppression of Aboriginal women as well as celebrating their wit and ingenuity in the methods they employe for fleecing white 'captains' (sugar daddies) who vie for their favours.
