Aunty Shirley Lomas, a descendant of the Gamilaroi and Waka Waka Aboriginal nations, talks with Chrstine Olsen, screenwriter and producer of Rabbit-Proof Fence. Aunty Shirley discusses her experience as a member of the stolen generations and introduces her story. They refer to the scene in the film where the girls are forcibly taken from their family.
They are discussing Rabbit-Proof Fence with an audience of over 240 school students as part of a nationwide video-conference through the NFSA Connects program, in November 2012. You can view more clips from this discussion on our YouTube channel.
