Featuring Rosalie Kunoth-Monks OAM, Jedda (1955), critically acclaimed as one of the first Australian feature films to have an Aboriginal person as its central character. It is also the first colour feature film depicting the Australian landscape made in Australia.

Free, everyone welcome.

About the film:
Set against the harsh natural environment of outback Northern Territory, Jedda captures a rare and honest glimpse into the heart and history of Indigenous Australia. Young Jedda is caught between two cultures, forbidden from learning about her Indigenous heritage and never fully accepted by the other as she is raised by a white woman. Her whole life is dramatically changed when she was abducted by a young Aboriginal man from the bush.
