Nice Coloured Girls

Australia, 1987 (MIFF 1987)

Director: Tracey Moffatt

"Nice Coloured Girls is an experimental film dealing with European men's first confrontations with Aboriginal women 200 years ago This is juxtaposed with some present day Aboriginal women's urban ritual: the practice of picking up a captain (sugar daddy).

Most films which have dealt with Aboriginal people have attempted to be realist in approach. In a sense, this film is an experiment in that it questions the now established genre of the Aboriginal film'." Tracey Moffatt
