Rabbit Proof Fence
Molly's the big one.
The little one's|her sister Daisy.
The middle one's|their cousin Gracie.
Well, what about the fathers?
Bring it here.
The next batch.
Nothing out of the ordinary.
There's two applications|for section 63 ex emptions.
Police reports are there.
William Harris is applying|for permission to marry.
She's half-caste also.
And Mary Wilson's applying
for permission to visit|her child at Moore River.
She's quite agitated.
Oh, and Gladys Phillips
has written for permission|to buy some new shoes.
She had a new pair a year ago.
Er, now, this report|from Constable Riggs
about three little half-caste girls
at the Jigalong fence depot -|Molly, Gracie and Daisy.
The youngest is|of particular concern.
She is promised to a full-blood.
I'm authorising their removal.
They're to be taken to|Moore River as soon as possible.
Oh, and Miss Thomas,
if you could check that the rate|for police transportation
is still, I believe,|eight pence per mile.
Yes, Mr Neville.|Thank you.
That country over there,|that's Wongi country.
You can't go there.
You get big trouble.
Yeah, I know.
Where your country?
Long way from here.
Our dad works there|on the rabbit fence.
How far does rabbit fence|go to?
The rabbit-proof fence?
It goes all the way|to the sea down that way.
Right to the top of Australia.
Longest fence in the world.
And all the way|to the sea down that way.
1,500 miles long.
Keeps the rabbits|on that side of the fence.
Keeps the farmland|on this side of the fence.
That Molly's|getting to be a big girl.
Mr Neville's been writing to me|about those girls, you know.
Come on, it's your turn.
Come and get your rations.
Come for the three girls,|Maude.
This is my kids! MINE!
It's the law, Maude.|No!
Got no say in it.|No! Mine!
Move one inch|and I'll lock your mother up!
Neville's their legal guardian.
Get away from us! Go!
Give me back my Daisy!
You sit up and you stay!
I've got the papers, Maude!
Don't take them! No!|You've got no say in it!
Hear this - don't move!
Nothing you can do here,|old girl!
Nothing you can do.
As you know,|every Aborigine born in this State
comes under my control.
Notice, if you will,|the half-caste child.
And there are|ever-increasing numbers of them.
Now, what is to happen to them?
Are we to allow the creation|of an unwanted third race?
Should coloureds be encouraged|to go back to the black?
Or should they be advanced|to white status
and be absorbed|in the white population?
Now, time and again,|I'm asked by some white man,
"If I marry|this coloured person,
"will our children be black?"
And as Chief Protector|of Aborigines,
it is my responsibility
to accept or reject those marriages.
Here is the answer.
Now, as you can see,|in the third generation,
or third cross,
no trace of native origin|is apparent.
The continuing|infiltration of white blood
finally stamps out|the black colour.
The Aboriginal|has simply been bred out.
...we come to...
We come to the Moore River|Native Settlement.
Ladies, most of you are familiar|with our work here -
the training of domestic|servants and farm labourers.
I would like to thank you|for your continuing support.
Hundreds of half-caste children
have been gathered up|and brought here
to be given the benefit
of everything|our culture has to offer.
For if we are to fit and train|such children for the future,
they cannot be left as they are.
And, in spite of himself,
the native must be helped.
Such a long way.|You must be exhausted.
Come along - I'll take you|straight to the dormitory.
Quickly. It's alright.
Down you hop.
Follow me, please.
That's the way.
There's some beds there.
The bucket's in the corner.
Back to sleep, the rest of you.
All of youse! Make your beds!
Irene, Cheryl,|stop running around.
Get them blankets tidy.
What's your name?
Where you from?
You'll get used to it.
Tracker girl, get that bucket.|Take it out now!
What are you standing there|dreamin' about?
Get out to breakfast now!
Go, all of you!
Thank you, children.|Ready for our prayers.
Bow your heads.
Thank you|for the food we eat
Thank you|for the world so sweet
Thank you|for the birds that sing
Thank you, God, for everything.
There will be no talking.
We'll have no wangka here!
You talk English!
EAT! Or I'll hold your nose|and force it down you!
Here. Keep still.
We've got to scrub you.
Let me see.
Doesn't that feel better?
Yes, Miss Jessop.|Yes, Miss Jessop.
Thank you, Miss Jessop.|Thank you, Miss Jessop.
That is much better.
Put these on.
Come on. Get dressed.
This is your new home.|We don't use that jabber here.
You speak English.
# Way down|upon the Swanee river
# Far, far away
# There's where my heart|is turning ever
# There's where|the old folks stay... #
What are they doing?
Singing Mr Devil's|favourite song.
Singing Mr Devil's|favourite song.
The one on the end,|on the chair.
# ...Ionging|for the old plantation
# And for the old folks|at home. #
Very good. Well done.
The following children|will come forward -
This way, Tommy. Here.
Come on. Stand up straight.
Whoo, hold, boy.|Tommy.
What are they doing now?
They checkin'|for the fair ones.
They gotta take them|to Sister Kate's.
They're more clever than us.
They can go to proper school.
Thank you. No.
Molly Craig!|Go on, get up.
Hurry up, they'll whip you.
Molly, come on, dear.|Get up.
Quick.|Come on, young lady.
They'll put you in the boob,|hurry up.
Just Molly, please.
Where you goin'?|Come back here.
Sit down.|Hurry up.
That's the way.
Don't be afraid.
Come on,|I'm not going to hurt you.
A bit further.
It's Molly, isn't it?
I know it all feels|very strange,
but after a few days|you'll feel quite at home.
We're here to help,
and encourage you|in this new world.
Duty, service, responsibility.
Those are our watchwords.
Molly, keep still.|It's alright, it's alright.
Over here. Sweep it over here.
To the door.
Come on, this way.
Push it towards me.
Eh, tracker's come back.
Eh, tracker girl.
Your dad's bringin' Olive back.
Thank you, Moodoo.|Stand there, young lady.
Did you really think|you'd get away with it?
Now stop that crying.
See what Miss Doyle has here?
Olive, look at me.
You see this here?|The scissors?
Did she run away home?
She ran away|to see her boyfriend.
Let's see if those boys|at New Norcia
find you so attractive now.
She broke out through here.
Usual story - off to see|her boyfriend at New Norcia.
Mmm.|The tracker brought her back.
Ah, yes, Moodoo.
Mr Neal tells me that|your probation period is up,
and that you wish to return to|the Kimberleys, is that right?
Of course, your daughter|is here, isn't she?
There would be no question|of her going.
She would have to stay here|and continue her training.
I think for the time being,
it would be best|for all concerned
if you were to remain here,|Moodoo.
I'd be prepared to consider|your case in a year or so,
but, er, until then...
Now, about those little ones|from Kalgoorlie.
Those babies -|where their mothers?
They got no mothers.
Nobody here got any mothers.
I got mother.
Come on, they're lining up.|Let's go.
Make me sick.
Make me sick.
Come on, make your beds!
Nice and tidy!
If you've already done it,|get to the church now.
Molly, take the bucket out.
Now, the three of you,|go up to the church.
Come on, you kids,|get up there, you're late!
Come on, get your things.|We're going!
Where we going?
We're going home, to Mother.
How we gonna get there?
We're not going. Are we, Daisy?
We like it here.
That tracker, he's gonna get us|and put us in that room.
They're not gonna get us.
We'll just keep walking.|The rain'll cover our tracks.
We gotta go now.
Come on. Quick.
Come on, Gracie. Now.
Too far, Molly.|Hurry up.
# He made their tiny wings
# All things bright|and beautiful
# All creatures great|and small... #
Come on, let's go!
Nina, have you seen|the new girls?
Haven't seen 'em all day, miss.
Mr...Mr Neville says|you better come real quick.
That's two days ago, Mr Neal.
Yes, I understand, but I require|to be kept fully informed.
Thank you. Goodbye.
Those three girls,|they've run off.
Probably the older one.
I wondered when I saw her.
Too much of their mind...
The tracker's onto it.
In the meantime, it must be|kept out of the papers.
No rain, tracker gonna get us.
Tracker's not gonna get us.
We gotta keep going.|Come on, Gracie.
Daisy, give me your bag.
Give us your bag, quick.
Give us it!
Hurry up!|In the water, in the water.
We need to cover our tracks.
Shh, shh, shh.
Whoa. Whoa, whoa.
I see...the emu?
No, that's not it.
I see the kangaroo.
I don't see nothing.|There's no food here.
I see...|We don't know this place.
How are we going to eat?|Shh!
Quick, hide. Come on.
Ask them, Molly.|Ask them for something to eat.
Hey, you from|that Moore River place, eh?
We're going home.
Where your country?
Proper long way.
Do you know what you're doing?
That tracker|from Moore River...
...he pretty good.
I heard he get them runaways|all the time.
You've got to be good|to beat him.
He'll take you back|to that place.
You watch out for him, eh?
You think you're so smart.
Where are we?
Jigalong that way.
The tracker followed them|to this riverbank
but lost their tracks|in the water about a week ago.
There's been no sign|of them since.
Three little half-castes.
We're talking|quite a few man hours here.
Who's going to pay for it?
There's very little money|in my departmental budget.
I'm hoping your men can combine|this with their regular duties.
We'll be able to handle|all the notifications,
posting police stations, farms...
We'll provide a description.
But if my men make trips|outside their duties,
it's an impost|on your department, Mr Neville.
If your men are on other jobs,|there is no extra expense.
I see that, Mr Neville.
Every one of your men|has a role as local protector.
My men will do their jobs,|Mr Neville.
Now, a week ago, you said.|Yes.
Hey, Maude.|Your girls have gone.
What did you say?
They've run away|from Moore River.
Everybody's looking for them.
And what do you think|you might be up to?
Thieving my eggs, eh?
You come out here|where I can see you.
Come on. Stand up.
Out you come.
And get rid of that bread.
You want something to eat,|you ask for it.
I'm not going to bite you.
Are you on your own?
Got anyone with you?
There you are.
Where are you girls|planning on going?
Cat got your tongue, eh?
And watch out for those boys|further along.
They go out hunting rabbits|along the fence.
That rabbit-proof fence?
Yes, the rabbit-proof fence.
Where that rabbit fence?
Which way now?
Find that rabbit fence,|we go home.
Then we see our mum.
"The Chief Protector of|Aborigines, Mr A.O. Neville..."
"...is concerned|about three native girls
"ranging from eight|to fourteen years of age
"who a month ago
"ran away from the Moore River|Native Settlement."
"He would be grateful|if any person...who saw them
"would notify him...promptly.
""We have been searching|high and low for the children
""for a month past,'|added Mr Neville.
""And all the trace we found|of them was a dead rabbit."'
It's the fence! It's the fence!|She found it!
Now, the latest sighting|which is four days old is...
The man from the newspaper.|I have nothing more to say!
May I have a look?
Dalwallinu, Bunnawarra, Yalgoo.
They're on the fence.
They're following|the rabbit-proof fence.
Just because people use|Neolithic tools, Inspector,
does not mean|they have Neolithic minds.
This makes our task|very much easier.
Look. There's a branch off here|to the west, north of Yalgoo.
Now, you put your man|out here on the fence
and north of this junction.
He can start|to come down it to meet them.
I'll have Moodoo come up|from the south behind them.
We can't miss them.
My legs, Molly.
They hurt. I can't walk.
I'll carry you only once,|alright?
Don't think I'm carrying you|all the way.
Where are you girls headed?
Going to Mullewa?
Got family there?
The way you're headed|along the number two fence.
Are there|two rabbit-proof fence?
We've got three of them.
We're on the wrong fence.
Where the north fence?
North fence - back that way|where you come from.
You can cut across.
I'll show you.
Number one rabbit fence.
Here's the number two fence.
Now, you're here.
But you want to be here.
Now, if you cut across here...
...you save yourself|100 mile or so.
It's not hard.
I'm going back.
I don't have the petrol.
Hey, we're hungry.
Are youse that lot|from Moore River?
What -|you girls walk all that way?
I was there.
Too scared to run away, but.
Everyone was always caught,|stuck in that boob.
Youse got the furtherest.
Where you heading?
I'll come back and get you.
Sleep with me.|I'll get you some food.
Just getting the washing,|Mrs Evans!
Shh! What's that?
There's someone coming.
Quick, quick, into bed.
Hide under the blankets.
Go away.|Don't worry about that!
Come on, quick. Get up.|Get up! Come on!
Shh, shh, shh.
Don't go, Molly.
Please don't go.
He come back if you go.
He won't say anything.
Quick! Wake up. Wake up.|You got to go.
Let's have a look.
Out that way. Just keep going.
They were running out over|there about an hour or so ago.
We'll pick up their tracks|in the morning.
I'll make a cup of tea.
That's the tracker.
Yeah, that's him.
I do not expect you|to understand
what I am trying to do|for these people.
But I'll not have my plans|jeopardised.
The problem of half-castes|is not simply going to go away.
If it is not dealt with now,
it will fester|for years to come.
These children are that problem.
Please explain|exactly what happened.
I don't know how they did it,|but we lost them.
I had Larsen out there.|Moodoo was with him.
They're making right fools of us.
They are indeed, Inspector.
And the cost is more|than to just our pride.
This department's reputation|is beginning to suffer.
My men have better things to do
than chase your charges|all around the country.
...they're coming|into very rough terrain.
Once they're|much past Meekatharra,
I can't risk any of my men.
Yes, we must find them before|they reach real desert country.
So this is what|we're going to do.
You get your man up there.|Moodoo can join him.
Well up the fence - around here.
Far enough up so we know|we cannot possibly miss them.
And I want them to stay there.
They can set up camp and wait.
Well, we'll just have to bear it.
Their lives may be at stake.
Inspector, I understand|the mother of one of the girls
has gone to Wiluna.
The children are headed|into that country.
I want the word spread.
Let's see what that does.
You wouldn't get me out there.
She's pretty clever, that girl.
She wants to go home.
Good thing|you kids ran into me.
A lot of people|worried for you.
The police are up and down|the country looking for youse.
It's in all the papers.
Which one of you is Gracie?
Are you Gracie?
I hear your mummy in Wiluna.
You can catch a train there|from Meeka.
Wiluna - is she at Wiluna?
Come on, Gracie.
Don't listen to him.
He's a liar.
Maybe she there, Molly.
Maybe he telling the truth.
Let's go to Meeka,|catch a train to Wiluna.
If they see us,|they'll catch us.
We can't stop now.
We must keep going.
We're nearly there.
But, Molly, Mummy there.
She at Wiluna.
I want Mummy.
Come on, Daisy.
Come on, Daisy.
You have to carry me, Molly.
She not coming.
Don't look back.|Don't look back. She'll come.
You got them?
One for you, one for me|and one for both of us.
Come on, Dais.
We've got to go back for Gracie.
What are you going to do -|sell the thing?
I've got her!
I want to get the train|to Mummy!
This is one of them.|She thinks her mummy's there.
Oi! Grab her!
You're not going anywhere.|Now, get in that car now.
There will be a shilling|for you back at the station.
I'm taking you back|where you belong.
She gone, Molly?
She not coming back?
Needle in a haystack.
Well, that's it.
Pack your stuff.|We're getting out of here.
They're only paying us|for three weeks.
To Constable Riggs,|Police Station, Nullagine.
The two missing half-caste|girls, Molly and Daisy,
are returning to Jigalong|via the rabbit-proof fence,
our efforts to apprehend them|thus far having come to nought.
I therefore expect them|to arrive in Jigalong
in about a month's time.
In your capacity|as local protector,
you are to proceed to Jigalong|to await their arrival
and effect their recapture.
I want Mother.
The fence will come back.
It's coming through now.
"Riggs arrived Jigalong.
"Awaits your instructions."
Yes, there will be a reply.|Please wait.
"Girl is to be sent|south, via Meekatharra,
"to be accompanied|at all times.
What's all that about?
Just some women's business.
Been going on all day.
That tracker,|he not going to get us now.
Nah, he's not going to get us.
I'm not going to stay here. I can feel it.
They're up to something.
I'm going to go take a look.
I lost one... |...I lost one.
To Constable Riggs,
Police Station, Nullagine.
At present, we lack the funds
to pursue|the missing half-caste girls,
Molly and Daisy.
I would ask
to be kept informed|of their whereabouts,
so that at some future date,|they may indeed be...recovered.
We face an uphill battle|with these people...
...especially the bush natives,
who have to be protected|against themselves.
If they would only understand
what we are trying to do|for them.
