Moffatt, Tracey (1960 - )

Documentary Film. A documentary from 1989 about strong, successful Aboriginal women in Western Australia. Includes interviews with Sally Morgan, Lois Olney, Helen Corbett and Helen Dorondorf; stills of Aboriginal people and the land; stories in two Aboriginal languages about life after the coming of the white man. Aboriginal music and dance are presented between the interviews. -- General note: The interviews take the form of continuous portraits with voice-overs that are 'out of sync' with the image, as the director's intention was for the voices to speak for all Aboriginal women.

There is also documentation associated with the production of the film listed in the catalogue.
