Summary
  • Archive footage on standard 8 mm film of Nuns in Broome and Beagle Bay, a Sister with mother and Aboriginal children, and a Nun in an Aboriginal camp in Central Australia
  • Film synopsis: The Sisters of St John of God have lived and worked amongst Aboriginal people in Western Australia's Kimberley for almost 100 years. This epic story of Irish and Australian nuns is set against the rich and tragic history of the Kimberley region and the government policies of the day. Using rare archival material, re-enactments and contemporary anecdotes, the shared experiences of the Aborigines and the Sisters create a compelling story of loss, determination and survival
