Dramatization of the true story of three little girls, part of the “stolen generation” that were kidnapped and brought to Aboriginal residential schools.

 

This is a dramatization of the true story of three little girls, called “half-caste” by the Australian government, part of the “stolen generation” kidnapped from their families and communities and brought to Aboriginal residential schools whose mission was to train them as domestic workers and assimilate them into Australian society. Young Molly Craig, leading her little sister and cousin in a daring escape, must elude the authorities and walk the dangerous 1,500 miles along the rabbit-proof fence that will lead them home. This awesome film, with spectacular cinematography and music, is based on the book set down by Molly’s daughter, Doris Pilkington Garimara. It’s an affirmation of strength and determination in the face of racism. The last scene is a gift.

Oyate also carries the book, Rabbit Proof Fence.
