AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Stolen Generations, directed and narrated by Aboriginal filmm-maker Darlene Johnson, continues the examination of the impact of the removal of Aboriginal children from their families during the 1950s and 1960s. Using the particular stories of Bobby Randall, Cleonie Quayle and Daisy Howard, the fi lm expands upon the themes of Lousy Little Sixpence, showing the wide range of ways in which Aboriginal children were removed and the variety of destinations for the children.

The stories are combined with interviews with two well-known Australian historians Marcia Langton and Henry Reynolds who describe the racist assumptions behind these policies. Removing children was a deliberate government policy and the end aimed for was the eventual disappearance of Aborigines as a people. Illustrated with striking archive footage and a first person narration by Aboriginal director Darlene Johnson.(Source: Ronin Films website)
