Moffatt, Tracey (1960 - )

Experimental documentary film contrasting the relationship between Aboriginal women and white men in the past and in the 1980s. The film juxtaposes contemporary images of black women with a voice-over of extracts from early journals of white settlers and sailors, in order to question the validity of conventional white history and to deny the image of Aborigines as passive and powerless. -- General note: Additonal credits: Philippa Harvey (Film editor); Gail Mabo, Cheryl Pitt, Lindsay McCorrmack (Cast).

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