In My Own Words
In My Own Words is an uplifting documentary on the work of the Literacy for Life Foundation.
For a short time you can watch the entire film online on the SBS On Demand website.
The film screened July 30 on NITV and SBS and featured at the 2017 Sydney Film Festival in June.
It is directed by Erica Glynn and produced by Blackfella Films.
Glynn embedded herself in a Literacy for Life Foundation class running in the small New South Wales town of Brewarrina.
The audience gets to watch on as a group of Aboriginal adults pick up pen and paper for the first time and begin to learn to read and write.
It is a heartwarming story that shows what is possible through lifting literacy.
