Here I Am

Beck Cole | Australia | 2011 | M

This event has ended and tickets are no longer available.


Tue 2 May 2023

Beck Cole's groundbreaking debut is a moving and hopeful story about the strength and resilience of women.

Karen is a beautiful young woman with a dark past; but she’s got potential and she knows it. Fresh out of prison, she finds herself on the streets with a burning desire to turn her life around but no one to call for help. Eventually she finds safe haven at a shelter for women like herself. With the support of her new community of friends, Karen begins the journey of reconnecting with her estranged mother and her young daughter, and she is soon propelled to face the most difficult truths of her life.

Following the screening will be a discussion led by ACMI's First Nations Programmer, Amanda Haskard and Anusha Duray of NITV on the representation of First Nations women on screen.
