This project was designed to produce a powerful, short movie that was shown to Australians and a global audience at the United Nations in 2009, about the story of the alcohol ban implemented at Fitzroy Crossing in Western Australia. It tells the story of the Indigenous women who made it happen and the far reaching results of their courage to reduce the levels of alcohol use, domestic violence and improve the health of their families for the future.
The project was funded by an anonymous donor and managed by The George Institute for Global Health and the Australian Human Rights Commission.
