Wondering why times are missing?

Rabbit-Proof Fence

This true-life drama from 2002 relates a dark and often unspoken chapter in Australian history. Up until the 1950s, the Australian government routinely removed half-caste children from their Aboriginal mothers and shipped them off to internment camps to be trained as domestic servants. Here one tough-minded little girl skips out on a camp and embarks on 1,500-mile journey (with two younger girls in tow) to return to her home. Shocking in its truth, inspiring in its message (if a little black-and-white in its storytelling), this well-crafted tale is an emotional winner. 95 minutes R.
