  • Description

    A documentary surveying the policy and practice of removal of Indigenous Australian children from their families. The film is an historical account based on personal testimony, and examines the reasons why the policy of assimilation and removal of Aboriginal children was introduced and maintained for so long. It reveals some of the long term effects of the policy and shows why the stolen generations are as much a part of our present as they are of our past. — General notes: The documentary combines intimate interviews with archival footage and still photographs and subtle recreations. — Source of information: FFC publicity notes. There is documentation associated with the production of the film held in the NFSA collection.
