Trailer of the Day: The Baulkham Hills African Ladies Troupe

The Baulkham Hills African Ladies Troupe

Directed by Ros Horin
Produced by Tristram Miall

The Baulkham Hills African Ladies Troupe is an inspirational new documentary, celebrating the remarkable resilience and spirit of four African Australian women from Eritrea, Kenya, Guinea and Sierra Leone.
Aminata, Rosemary, Yordy and Yarrie all fled violence and sexual abuse in their homelands, eventually finding a safe haven in Australia. For years they each held their pain within, until they decide to join a theatre group and speak out.
Under the nurturing guidance of acclaimed theatre director Ros Horin, the four women came together to let their life stories be transformed into an extraordinary theatrical experience, which became a sell-out success from its very first show.
Filmed over three years this new documentary charts the personal journeys of Aminata, Rosemary, Yordy and Yarrie, from their first theatre group meeting through trauma, healing and public triumph, as The Baulkham Hills African Ladies Troupe travels from western Sydney, to the city, to the international stage.
