Watched this very moving sad film yesterday..
Something called Rabbit Proof Fence..
It's a true story from some 60 odd years ago of 3 young aboriginal children that were forcibly separated from their mothers by the state, in a barbaric attempt (that only ended in 1970!) to somehow eradicate the aborignal race, through interbreeding them with white people..
The girls are taken over 1500 kms from their homeland, where they are then imprisoned with a whole bunch of other kids suffering the same fate..
Through bush survival skills, these 3 girls escape the home they are forced to live in, and miraculously (2 of them) find their way back to their mother..
It's an incredibly sad movie that had me crying through the most of it, and even now, just thinking of it, the tears are welling up again..
I find human behaviour often extremely incomprehensible..
