DESCRIPTION
CAFAM Global Links presents:
A screening of RABBIT-PROOF FENCE, a film by Phillip Noyce
With a Q&A with Artists for Amnesty

Learn more about the “stolen generation,” a controversial chapter of Australian history during which Aboriginal children were taken from their families by the state. Based on actual events, Rabbit-Proof Fence (2002) tells the story of three mixed-race Aboriginal girls who run away from the residential school in which they were placed and try to return home. The film follows the girls as they walk for nine weeks, along a 1,500 mile rabbit-proof fence, to reunite with their families.

A Q&A will follow with an artist-advocate from Artists for Amnesty, an affiliate group of Amensty International comprised of committed artists who work to promote human rights, prevent abuse, and save lives.
