Described as part biopic, part social history, the documentary dives deep on Glynn, born beneath a tree north of Alice Springs in 1939, and follows her childhood which was spent living under the Aboriginal Protection policies and the impact, both good and bad, that they had on her life.

As an adult, Glynn went on to found the Central Australian Aboriginal Media Association (CAAMA), and Imparja TV, and the documentary is told through the perspective of her children and grand-children, many of whom followed in her footsteps into the film and television industry.

If you missed She Who Must Be Loved at the Sydney Film Festival, you’re in luck – NITV have picked it up as part of their NAIDOC Week offering, and it’ll be screening on Sunday 14 July at 8.30pm. It’ll also be available for streaming as of the 14th via SBS On Demand.
