This seems like a good place to support Australian women’s film. Get around Here I Am which premiered last week at the Message Sticks Indigenous Film Festival. It is in cinemas nationally from June 2, 2011.

Written and directed by Beck Cole, Here I am is the story of Karen, a beautiful young woman with a dark past who has potential and she knows it. Fresh out of prison, she finds herself on the streets with a burning desire to turn her life around but no one to call for help. Eventually she finds a haven at a shelter for women like herself. With the support of her new community of friends, Karen begins the journey of reconnecting with her estranged mother and her young daughter, and she is soon propelled to face the most difficult truths of her life. But she’s determined to never give up. Set and shot in and around Port Adelaide, Here I Am is a moving and hopeful story about the strength and resilience of women.
