What outcomes do you hope to achieve by making this film and how will you measure its impact?

We hope to bring awareness and a better understanding of Aboriginal people in today's world - by listening to their history, their philosophies, their respect and care for the land, their survival for 50,000 years and their survival today - to a broader audience and to break through some invisible barriers that may exist.
Strategy

What is your education and outreach strategy?

This documentary is about two groups of girls from different cultural backgrounds, different circumstances and two very different schools. They meet and within minutes warmly welcomed each other into their lives. The film explores the journey of this bond and hopes to broadcast this shared humanity to schools throughout Australia. We also hope that The Board of Education considers including a broader based awareness of Aboriginal people today reflected in it's curriculum with this documentary as the impetus.
