Ella – The Dancer

Tuesday 8th November / presented by Caitlin Nienaber

Ella – The Dancer is a new documentary about a young woman’s dreams of becoming a ballerina.

But it’s a lot more then that because Ella Halveka made history three years ago by becoming the first indigenous Australian to be part of the Australian ballet.

Ella – The Dancer looks at Ella’s journey and offers an insight into the complex experience of being an Indigenous young woman.

Caitlin spoke with Director Douglas Watkins on Breakfast ahead of the documentary’s premiere this weekend.
