AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Rachel works from the Blackfella Films office on Sydney Harbour in Gadigal country. She came to filmmaking from Canberra via Alice Springs, and is part of a large family of filmmakers that still work together. They’ve had a lot of fun over the years – burning down a house in Radiance (1998), making musicals One Night the Moon (2001) and Bran Nue Dae (2009), and covering 200 years of Australia’s Indigenous history in First Australians (2008). Rachel balances her creative film work with serving on many boards that govern filmmaking and screen culture.'
