Black Power comes to town....and stays!
18 May 2002 | by (Longmont, Colorado) – See all my reviews

I had the opportunity of seeing this outstanding docudrama at a local Sydney Film Festival last year. A winner, if ever there was one!

Poignant and powerful flag-waving exercise for the Aboriginal cause as Purcell follows the lives and intricacies of five indigenous women who are all leaving their mark on Australia in the new millennium.

Deborah Mailman, accomplished actress and star of many Australian movies, including THE SECRET LIFE OF US. Miss Kathryn Hay who scaled the heights to become the unlikely (but totally deserving...yummy!) 1999 Miss Australia. Tammy Williams, a 24 year old leading attorney with a major-league following. Rosanna Argus, the Warden of Broome's "traditional" community! and to round things up, the fifth - an extraordinary lady, Cilla Malone, mother of six!

Purcell's documentary, co-produced with long-time partner Bain Stewart, is a fresh revelation, a study in how to produce a successful documentary. Robert De Niro himself invited Purcell to show the film in May 2002 at his self-financed New York film festival "TriBeCa." Although not in the final award list, the film was singled out for deserved praise and was screened to full houses.

If you get the opportunity to see it, I suggest you do so!
