When Colin met Joyce


Colin, a white man, and political activist Joyce Clague met in 1964 and have had a mixed-race marriage that has been entwined in a forty-year journey of support, nurturing, devotion, commitment and love. They are the yin and yang of each other.

But it is their principles about Aboriginal welfare, social justice, humanity and family that bind them and have helped shape the Australian nation.

When Colin met Joyce is a love story with a true sense of reconciliation bringing Colin's and Joyce's lives together.

For us as film-makers it's important to give it back to our community. [When Colin met Joyce] is a gift to the Clarence River. It identifies Yaegl country really well.
