M Mature Themes Scroll to content

A celebration of the remarkable spirits of four African women survivors of abuse, and the triumph of their improbable theatre troupe.

Four women, having fled from different parts of Africa to escape violence and abuse, find a safe haven in Australia, but still they hold their pain silently within them.

Together, they decide to join a theatre group and speak out.

Under the nurturing guidance of theatre director Ros Horin, they collaborate to let their life stories be transformed into an extraordinary and joyously uplifting theatrical experience.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with special guests and all money from ticket sales goes to supporting the work of the Refugee Council of Australia.
