Closing Night Gala: The Last Daughter
Mark the end of the 2023 Gold Coast Film Festival with the Queensland Premiere of The Last Daughter. Walk the red carpet, enjoy the Gala screening and join the closing night festivities.
The Last Daughter is a moving and unique documentary about one woman’s mission to unearth the truth about her past, and to reconcile the two sides of her family.
Brenda’s first memories were of growing up in a loving white foster family, before she was suddenly taken away and returned to her Aboriginal family.
Decades later, she feels disconnected from both halves of her life. But the traumas of her past do not lie quietly buried. So, she goes searching for the foster family with whom she had lost all contact. Along the way she uncovers long-buried secrets, government lies, and the possibility for deeper connections to family and culture.
