The Screen Guide

History does not repeat itself, historians repeat each other. ROSIE'S SECRET uncovers one of Australia's forgotten heroes, Rosie Foster. Talking to an array of identities, including Phillip Adams and Dale Spender, we discover the pivotal role Foster played in the construction and celebration of one of Australia's national icons, the Sydney Harbour Bridge. But more importantly, we discover why she was omitted from history.
