  • Servant or Slave thumbnail Servant or Slave 31/05/2018 to 31/05/2018

    Film Screening with guest speaker Writer/Producer Mitchell Stanley
    Thursday 31 May 2018
    6pm, screening followed by guest speaker

    As part of Reconciliation Week ‘Don’t Keep History a Mystery’ Waverley Council is showing a free screening of Servant or Slave.
    by filmmaker Steven McGregor.

    Servant or Slave is an emotional and confronting insight into the history and legacy of the domestic servitude enforced upon Aboriginal girls in Australia, told through the stories of five women.  Many thousands of girls were stolen as young children from their parents and placed in institutions, to be trained as servants who could be assimilated into mainstream Australian society. In bringing to light the heartbreaking experiences of Rita, Violet, Adelaide, Valerie and Rita, Servant or Slave celebrates their fortitude in pursuing justice for the crimes committed against them. Theirs is a David and Goliath battle, waged not only for personal healing, but to shed light on a barely acknowledged part of modern Australia’s history whose consequences are still felt today.

    Come and watch this powerful film and contribute to a stronger understanding of the importance of historical acceptance to reconciliation in Australia.
