AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Frances Djulibing is a 42 year old mother of three who comes from the remote community of Ramingining in North East Arnhem land. Like many young girls, Frances always dreamed of being a movie star. Her journey from traditional tribal life to red carpets and awards ceremonies is unlike any other. It's a fascinating and unique story as Frances fights to overcome huge personal and cultural challenges. Yappa's Story is a story of change and transformation as Frances learns to move between the ancient life of the Yolgnu and modern world of the balanda.' Source:www.nfsa.gov.au (Sighted 28/07/2008)

Works about this Work

Between Worlds : Indigenous Identity and Difference in the Films of Darlene Johnson Therese Davis , 2014 single work criticism
— Appears in: Camera Obscura : A Journal of Feminism and Film Theory , vol. 29 no. 85 2014; (p. 81-110)

'The article looks at the contributions of writer and director Darlene Johnson to an emerging Australian Indigenous cinema. It discusses the ways in which Johnson draws on her experience as a young, urban Indigenous woman and her knowledge of Aboriginal culture to explore the postcolonial subjectivity of being caught between two worlds in her documentary and short fiction films, including River of No Return (2008), Gulpilil: One Red Blood (2002), Crocodile Dreaming (2006), and Two Bob Mermaid (1996). It argues that these films offer unique insights into the history of Indigenous involvement in cinema as a global system, and into the complexity of contemporary Indigenous filmmaking in Australia as a specialist sector that operates within while remaining different from the state-funded national film industry.'
