We're compelled to let you know of a crowd-funding campaign for a locally produced film about Australian Olympic legend Shirley Strickland Investing in this project will help us create a full treatment for our feature film about this international sporting icon. The combination of her sporting fame, intellect and social conscience against the back drop of the Cold war era Melbourne Olympics is an amazing Australian story. Not only was Shirley an athlete without peer, but she was a woman ahead of her time.
Not afraid to add her voice to a cause, she was a feminist before the term was known. Dave Warner is a writer of considerable repute and has grown up with the legacy of Shirley Strickland. This is the first step to what is envisaged to become a West Australian film production completed in time for the Olympic Games, thereby maximising the impact and the potential audience for the story.
