Description
In 1907 a group of young Irish nuns came ashore in one of Australia's most rugged and inhospitable regions - the far northwest. Their task was to "civilize and evangelise" the local Aboriginal women and children, first at Beagle Bay then the notoriously wild pearling town of Broome. This is an epic story set against one of the darkest and untold periods of Australia's past where slavery, leprosy, war and brutal government policies impacted on the local Aboriginal people. Using rare archival material, re-enactments and contemporary anecdotes, this one hour documentary traces the obstacles the Nuns encountered, what they achieved and their attempts today to reconcile the part they played in the troubled and complex history of the region. Director/writer/camera - David Batty Producer - Jen McMahon Editor - James Bradley
