The Hyderabad Film Club is screening a movie this evening at Sarathi Studios called Rabbit-Proof Fence. Directed by Phillip Noyce, this is the true story of Molly Craig, a young Aborigine girl who leads her younger sister and cousin in an escape from an official government camp, set up as part of an official government policy to train them as domestic workers and integrate them into white society.
With grit and determination, Molly guides the girls on an epic journey, one step ahead of the authorities, over 1,500 miles of Australia's outback, in search of the rabbit-proof fence that bisects the continent and will lead them home. The 3 girls are part of what are referred to today as the Stolen Generations.
