Join Curator of Indigenous Australian Art Stephen Gilchrist for a 15-minute spotlight tour of Crossing Cultures followed by a 7:00 p.m. screening of Rabbit-Proof Fence. Western Australia, 1931. Government policy directs taking half-caste children from their Aboriginal mothers and sending them a thousand miles away to what amounts to indentured servitude, .to save them from themselves.. Molly, Daisy, and Grace arrive at their Gulag and promptly escape. For days they walk north, following a fence that keeps rabbits from settlements, eluding pursuers who are blinded by Anglo- Christian certainty, evolutionary worldview, and conventional wisdom.
