I started writing the script soon after I’d had my first daughter. So I was drawn to making a film about mothers and their children. And I also thought that I wanted to deal with some of the difficulties that women have and experience throughout life
particularly women that live an underprivileged sort of life. And I wanted to create a story with a character that showed the difficult side of life but also a journey toward hope and the possibilities of a brighter future.
There are also many reasons why I needed to tell this story politically I am concerned about the dispropotionate number of Aboriginal people incarcerated in our country, personally I continue to consider my own life as an Aboriginal woman.
Limited access, please, reserve :
Puissant, émouvant, juste et ouvert sur l’avenir, « Here I am » est un premier film fabuleux de la jeune réalisatrice aborigène BecK Cole, déjà remarquée avec ses courts métrages « Nana », « Plains Empty » et « Fiat ».
Cinéma des Antipodes remercie Beck Cole et sa productrice Kath Shelper.
