The Last Daughter | Free Community Event
Portside Christian College is proudly to offer a special screening of The Last Daughter.
The Story goes…
After being raised by a white family, a young girl is taken away and returned to her Aboriginal family she didn’t know.
Decades later, she’s on a journey to discover where she truly belongs.
Brenda’s first memories were of growing up in a loving white foster family, before she was suddenly taken away and
returned to her Aboriginal family.
Decades later, she feels disconnected from both halves of her life. But the traumas of her past don’t lie quietly buried. So,
she goes searching for the foster family with whom she’d lost all contact.
Along the way she uncovers long-buried secrets, government lies and the possibility for deeper connections to family and
culture. The Last Daughter is a powerful and inspiring documentary about Brenda’s journey to unearth the truth in her
past, and reconcile the two sides of her family.
