BREC Presents Reconciliation Week Film Screening and Yarning Circle

After being raised by a white family, a young girl is taken away and returned to the Aboriginal family she didn’t know. Decades later, she’s on a journey to discover where she truly belongs.

At Campbelltown train station in 1973 a young Aboriginal girl named Brenda was handed over to hopeful white foster parents Mac and Connie.

There was no paperwork. There were no questions.

Brenda’s first memories are of growing up in this loving white foster family. Of being inseparable from her white foster sister and living the next five years as part of their family before being suddenly returned to her Aboriginal family.

Decades later, she feels disconnected to both halves of her life; and the traumas of her past do not lie quietly buried.


THE LAST DAUGHTER is a powerful and inspiring documentary that follows Brenda’s journey to unearth the truth in her past and reconcile the two sides of her family.

We discover the intersecting worlds of Aboriginal and White Australia through the eyes of someone trying to heal from their past by uncovering their story.

An unmissable documentary film and one that will stay with audiences long after it finishes screening.

BREC would like to invite the people of the South West to join us in recognition of Reconciliation Week 2023 as we seek for all Australians to Be a Voice for Generation.

Reconciliation Week is an opportunity for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.
