A moving story of resilience

THE award-winning feature film Here I Am will screen at Byron Bay Community Centre, as part of the fourth annual NAIDOC film screening, on Wednesday, July 6.

Set and shot in and around Port Adelaide, Here I Am is a moving and hopeful story about the strength and resilience of women.

Karen is a beautiful young woman with a dark past but she’s got potential and she knows it.

Fresh out of prison, she finds herself on the streets with a desire to turn her life around but no one to call for help.

Eventually she finds a haven at a shelter for women like herself.

With the support of her new community of friends, Karen begins the journey of reconnecting with her estranged mother and her young daughter and she is soon propelled to face the most difficult truths of her life. But she’s determined to never give up.

Here I Am, which is directed by Beck Cole, premiered earlier this year to a standing ovation at the Adelaide Film Festival.
