The Screen Guide

Twenty-five years ago an amazing four-part series hit Australian TV screens. 'Women of the Sun' (1990) depicted the lives of four Aboriginal women between the 1820s and the 1980s. The first TV series made in their own language, it was an instant classic. Producing the mini-series had a major impact on the director Bob Weis, and 25 years on he decides to reassess its importance to others, revisiting the women who played the leads to find out what they experienced, producing a fascinating and profoundly moving account.
