Middle-aged Aboriginal woman cares for her dying white mother in the desolate Australian Outback.
An immaculate short film depicting (the aftermath of?) Australia's stolen generation. The symbolism in Night Cries is unparalleled by any Australian film (short or full length) I've seen. Tracy Moffat also deserves the highest praise for her brilliant use of sound and imagery. Unfortunately, anyone outside of Australia will have a very hard (impossible) time seeing this movie, but if you're ever in Australia see this film.
