The Screen Guide

The story of Alice, a young Aboriginal girl who absorbs the fear and shame of her adoptive white parents. The film links the denial of Aboriginality to an invasive scene of incest which occurs throughout the film. A look at how untreated fear and shame get passed from one generation to the other. Expressionist images repeatedly disrupt the narrative to haunt us with the denial of racial and sexual abuse – legacies of colonisation.
