Why is the fact Aboriginal women are the fastest growing Incarceration group in Australia, not a part of urgent national discussion? Henrietta reveals the direct links between institutional racism and its trickle down effect into Aboriginal society, creating third world conditions. By going to the CORE of the issue in the institutions, Professor Henrietta Marrie AM has a record of international success. Last year she addressed racism in Queensland health through significant legislative change.The profound metaphor for all institutional racism in this feature documentary, directed by Rhoda Roberts AO, is the return of Henrietta’s great-grandfathers sacred ceremonial shell regalia from the British Museum’s sock drawer. It is a story of hope and possibility – and reveals what real untethered female leadership looks like. As a film it’s outreach will be global and Australian – specifically government policy makers in Justice, Health, Education and Museums/Arts. Henrietta is a proven global change maker. A quiet revolutionary. When, not if, will Australia listen to one of their own?
