West Australian Indigenous production companies PiNK PEPPER and Ramu are teaming up with the NZ powerhouse behind successful portmanteau feature films 'Vai' and 'Waru' to make one with an Aboriginal focus.

Screenwest has announced the eight female Indigenous writer-directors who will take part in a development process to make ten-minute stories that combine to form one scripted eighty-minute feature film exploring the theme of ‘missing Indigenous women’.

A talented and impressive bunch, these WA female writer-directors all have significant and varied media experience stretching over decades. They are: Kodie Bedford, Debbie Carmody, Jub Clerc, Kelli Cross, Karla Hart, Chantelle Murray, Ngaire Pigram and Mitch Torres.
