We believe we have created a film that not only reveals the life of a very special woman, but shines a light on the issues of disability in Australia's remote communities. Kushia's unique and fascinating talent is sure to astound audiences across the nation and the world. This documentary reveals the challenges Kushia has been forced to overcome through issues of isolation, disability and cultural integration. Kushia's artwork does not fit the 'mould' of well-known Indigenous Australian artists as she does not have a passion for dot painting. Hers is a talent all of her own yet because of the isolation of her desert community, she does not receive the same support or recognition for her work as young women who live in the city. Our ultimate hope is that this film creates an opportunity for Kushia to pursue a career in the arts industry and secure life-long employment. The story will not end here.
