Rosemary’s Way is a celebration of the remarkable Rosemary Kariuki and her unique work in drawing migrant women out of their suburban isolation, into connection with other cultures, so they can better participate in Australian life.
In the film, Rosemary is our host, our guide, our effervescent facilitator; but the key characters are the migrant women who are drawn into her wake. By following Rosemary over the course of a year on her various adventures with these women, the film takes us on a deep dive into their lives. We are witness to intimate revelations, that are uncensored and come straight from the heart, as the women share their experiences with other women. And what we discover is surprising and unexpected.
