AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Go For Broke re-lives the Palm Island strike of 1957 through a play written by Dulcie Isaro. As a fifteen-year-old girl, Dulcie witnessed her father's key role as one of the strike leaders and was expelled from Palm along with six other familles when the strike was brutally repressed. Still haunted by her memories, Dulcie returned to Palm Island in 1994 only to find that this proud chapter had all but been forgotten. (Film synopsis)
