About the event

Join us for this free film screening to celebrate National Reconciliation Week 2021.

In My Own Words is a raw and heartfelt film that takes the viewer on an often funny journey of adult Aboriginal students and their teachers, as they discover the transformative power of reading and writing for the first time.

The film was inspired by the work of the Literacy for Life Foundation in rural towns like Brewarrina in NSW. The film gives viewers an opportunity to get to know a little about Aboriginal men and women by giving us a glimpse into their lives beyond the classroom.

The film's director Erica Glynn is an award winning Aboriginal film maker from Alice Springs.
