Rabbit-Proof Fence is an award-winning Australian film by celebrated director Philip Noyce. It brings to life the true story of three Aboriginal girls who escaped from a mission where they had been taken and held against their will. Despite a massive searh and near-intolerable conditions the three girls survive and two of them complete the epic trek across 1500 miles of harsh Australian desert to reach their journey's end. This film dramatises the issue that has become known as the 'Stolen Generations'. Study of the film is set, in this study guide, within the larger context of the NSW English Area of Study curriculum - 'The Journey'. The guide provides background material on the journey theme, examines the prescribed Stimulus Booklet ('Journeys') in detail, and offers students ways of reading the text in relation to the Area of Study theme.
