Abstract:

"Everyone appreciates the government's protection," wrote Gladys Gilligan in 1930 of the work camp where she and other biracial children were taken after being snatched from their homes. Her account was written at the behest of Aborigine Protector A.O. Neville and differs sharply from the heart-wrenching testimony provided by Stolen Generations survivors for this film. Gilligan rebelled against her role as "model Aborigine" but Neville kept a stranglehold on her life. Jandamurra was also caught between two worlds. Born on a cattle station, he went on to lead an insurrection against the ranchers. The First Australians' continued struggle, especially against the forced assimilation of the Stolen Generations, is recounted in this documentary. With Gilligan's son, Phillip Prosser; historian Howard Pedersen; and others.
