This paper discusses how the film Rabbit-Proof Fence serves as testimony of the Stolen Generations, turning all audience members into witnesses aware of the tragedy. "With the arrival of the European settlers the trauma of dispossession and loss of indigenous people in Australia started ... Through dislocation and removal Aborigines were disrooted and furthermore suffered oppression as they became wards of the state and were deprived of their freedom. Child removal as depicted in Rabbit-Proof Fence had traumatizing effects upon those dislocated and those left behind."--Conclusion (p. 21).
