  • From 1905 until 1971 the Australian government, in keeping with its policies of assimilation, was responsible for forcibly removing Aboriginal children from their families. Rabbit-Proof Fence is a film based on the true-life story of Molly, Grace and Daisy, three young Aboriginal girls who, in 1931 under government sanction, were taken from their family and placed into government care. Chistopher Hawkes considers the complexity and implications of crafting historical and personal events into motion picture dramas. He reflects on the nature of film as a medium for storytelling by examining its emotive qualities. He further explores the way in which audiences derive meaning from screen stories.
