An amazing journey into the lives of strong, proud indigenous women in Australia.
22 August 2002 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

'Black Chicks Talking' is one of the best documentaries I have seen in a LONG time. It is Leah Purcell's first entry into the world of film making and here's hoping it won't be her last!!!

Perhaps the beauty of this film, originates from the fact that Leah has made this without any inhibitions resulting from the preconcieved rules and regulations that often arise with formal training in film making.

The style is relaxed and provides information from a personal perspective. However, this information has educational merit, we have much to learn; and this is a story of Indigenous women's autonomy and control over their own voice and story!!

You get the feeling whilst watching this film, that the camera is no longer even noticed by the subjects...it is Leah they are talking to and this is a beautiful element!!!

In Australia, there is much discrimination, we like to see ourselves as the land providing fair and equal opportunities.

However, for this to become reality, we need to take responsibility for recognising our past, challenging our present and creating our future.

I encourage everyone to watch "Black Chicks Talking', it's honesty will speak louder than the silence which has permeated our history over the last 200 years.
