HERE I AM Reconciliation Banyule is screening FREE this excellent Aboriginal Film on Monday February 4th 7:30 pm – Ivanhoe Uniting Church, Seddon Street, Ivanhoe. Peter Harvey 9499 2005.
“Writer-director Beck Cole’s first feature is a gritty drama about an urban Aboriginal woman trying to pick up the shattered pieces of what has so far been a wasted life. Beautifully photographed by Cole’s partner, Warwick Thornton, on the streets of Adelaide, the film’s intentions are nothing if not honourable and the story it tells is very well worth telling. ” David Stratton, At the Movies
