Barbara’s World is a story of a strong woman of Aboriginal heritage. The themes are universal and relevant to the Aboriginal and Non-Aboriginal community. It is a film about overcoming odds and the search for a father’s home country. Edoardo’s documentary sheds light and empathy upon a painful and not broadly known part of Australia’s history with the intergenerational wounds still to be healed. He believes it has the potential to break down barriers between Aboriginal and Non-Aboriginal people and help generate empathy and understanding of the what, why and how of Aboriginal people today.
