A powerful documentary film can change the way communities respond to issues. Rosemary’s Way is a film about belonging, it tells the story of Rosemary Kariuki and her remarkable work drawing migrant women out of their isolation in suburban ghettos. Exposing them to new experiences and ideas, we see the women grow in confidence and move out from the margins to fully participate in Australian life.
Spending time with Rosemary and three migrant women over the course of a year, we learn their deeper stories, the struggles and challenges they face trying to settle into Australia.
This film supported by Documentary Australia Foundation is an important reflection on ‘how well multicultural Australia is doing in 2019’ from the perspective of migrant women.
