Summary Voices in the Dark documents Christina Henri's epic project Roses from the Heart, involving the creation of 25,566 embroidered bonnets, one for every convict woman transported to Australia from Great Britain in the 1800s.Henri's project asks us to consider the true legacy female convicts, sentenced for crimes of poverty and condemned by society as whores and wretches, have made to the societies we live in today.By showcasing some of the highly artistic bonnets created by thousands of participants worldwide, including hundreds of convict descendants, Voices in the Dark beautifully articulates the spirit of Henri's project and the emotional impact such a significant public memorial is having around the globe.PRODUCTION DETAILS: Produced and directed by Catherine Pettman and Andrew Wilson.
