The Baulkham Hills African Ladies Troupe Film Screening

On Tuesday 18 October, Anti-Slavery Australia and The Refugee Advice & Casework Service (RACS) will partner to host a film screening of The Baulkham Hills African Ladies Troupe at Randwick Ritz Cinema. This screening will be followed by a Q&A with members of the Baulkham Hills African Ladies Troupe.


This inspiring film follows the personal journeys of four women who fled from different parts of Africa to Australia to escape violence and abuse. Although they find refuge in Australia, their past still haunts them, until they join a theatre group which helps them find their voice to speak out and tell their story.

This film is a celebration of the remarkable resilience and empowerment of four African women, and the success of their improbable theatre troupe. Under the guidance of theatre director Ros Horin, they work together to showcase their personal journeys of facing their past trauma to healing and public triumphs as the Troupe's show moves from a stage in Western Sydney out to the world.

"This film inspires in two important ways - art is at its best when it allows catharsis through storytelling and a nation is at its best when it provides a refuge for humanity to heal and flourish". Dr George MillerĀ  Director of Mad Max: Fury Road
