Darlene Johnson was initially motivated to make films as a political response to the exclusion of Indigenous people from the media. In making films from an Aboriginal perspective, Johnson sees herself as making a contribution to Indigenous cultural heritage. She is inspired by the beauty of Tracey Moffatt’s films and the intellectual stamina and political determination of Aboriginal activist and scholar Marcia Langton. Johnson’s first film, Two Bob Mermaid (1996), deals with the complexity of being a white-skinned Aboriginal teenager.
