Rabbit-Proof Fence: Highlighting and resolving problems within Australian culture

Australia can boast of a long list of directors who have been involved in the creation of high-quality content. Among them is Gillian Armstrong, with her wonderful comedy Oscar and Lucinda. The film tells us about casinos with live dealers, luck, and the relationships between people. The same is true for Peter Faiman with his ever-popular Crocodile Dundee

Through his thought-provoking and touching film Rabbit-Proof Fence, Phillip Noyce takes an important place in this list. The British Film Institute included this film in the list of 50 must-see films for schoolchildren under the age of 14. What’s more, this film is one of the must-see films for all Australian schoolchildren.

Rabbit-Proof Fence is a drama film based on the “Follow the Rabbit-Proof Fence,” written by Doris Pilkington Garimara. The film was directed by Phillip Noyce and released by Miramax Films. 

The film touches on universal themes (love, struggle for freedom, and indomitable spirit), which are framed upon the historical background of Australia. The main characters of the film are three aboriginal girls who were forcibly placed in a state settlement.
