She Who Must Be Loved

Synopsis

She Who Must Be Loved is a documentary that tells the epic life story of Alfreda Glynn, directed by her daughter Erica Glynn.

Born under the Aboriginal Protection policies, in the early 1970s she channelled her formidable energy into establishing the Central Australian Aboriginal Media Association (CAAMA) and later Imparja TV.

Not just a bio-pic, it’s part social history and part detective story, as the mystery behind her grandmother's death is tracked down.

Alfreda Glynn is a 78-year-old Aboriginal woman, stills photographer, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, radical, pacifist, grumpy old woman, who in equal measure loves the limelight and total privacy.
