A new documentary will share the journey of an Alice springs based Aboriginal women's group which is working to make their communities safer through the development of projects and training combatting things such as domestic violence.

The Tangentyere Women’s Family Safety Group was established in 2014 with the aim of giving Aboriginal women in Alice Springs towns camps a voice.

Now their story and work will be shared with the wider Australian community through a documentary called Not Just Numbers.

Co-coordinator of the Tangentyere Women’s Family Safety Group and director of the documentary Shirleen Campbell says the purpose of the documentary was about getting their voices and stories heard.

The Documentary premiered at the recent Darwin International Film Festival and was produced by Brindle Films with support from NITV and Screen Territory.

Ms Campbell told CAAMA Radio the documentary will be aired on NITV and at a personal screening in Alice Springs later in the year.
