Baulkham Hills African Ladies Troupe | Point of View X G5A
Point of View in partnership with G5A, presents a screening of Baulkham Hills African Ladies Troupe (BHALT) – a documentary film that is a celebration of the remarkable spirits of four African women survivors of sexual abuse, and the triumph of their improbable theatre troupe. Four women fled from different parts of Africa to Australia in order to escape violence and abuse. They find a safe haven in Australia, but still they hold their pain silently within them. Until they decide to join a theatre group… and speak out. Under the nurturing guidance of theatre director Ros Horin, they collaborate to let their life stories be transformed into an extraordinary and joyously uplifting theatrical experience. This film charts their personal journeys from trauma to healing and public triumphs, as the Troupe’s show moves from a stage in western Sydney out to the world.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion to generate dialogue on the subject of violence against women, trauma and role of arts and media in the journey of healing.
Entry free and open to all. Please RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org
