an important Australian film
21 August 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Journey Among Women was a bold experiment in storytelling about women who seek liberation in colonial society which treated women as slaves. It was undertaken by a collective of brave and talented women . The script was written by Dianne Fuller. In accord with feminist principles of the time - the women sought control of the way their characters were depicted in the film. The film was extended by improvisation by the actors. Though it is a film of it's time and may appear to be dated , it is a rare instance of women empowering themselves in the film making process in a way which has rarely been repeated.

It remains a unique film in the history of Australian film making.
