‘An inspiring story about a remarkable person’
Greg Hassal, Sydney Morning Herald Review
‘Step Aside Priscilla there is a new Queen in town… We have a lot to learn from indigenous Australia’
I sat and watched that doco tonight with a permanent smile and then in parts, I was laughing out loud with the rest of Areyonga. That was one of the most gorgeous and inspirational stories I have seen in a long while. To work amongst indigenous people and to be privilege to culture is a gift not shared with many, but it seems, you are a light amongst all people with a heart of gold.
‘How beautiful to see a remote community finally portrayed as creative, healthy and vibrant. Great work @ABC2′
Last night I had the heartwarming pleasure of attending the Alice premiere of Queen of the Desert, the most uplifting, entertaining and downright outrageous doco about a Central Australian community I’ve ever seen. Five starladies from me!
