A celebration of the life and work of the trailblazing Alfreda Glynn, a history-maker, mother, and a central figure in Indigenous filmmaking from the heart of the country.

'Freda' Glynn was born on a remote cattle station north of Alice Springs in 1939. As a child she lived under the Aboriginal Protection policies; as a young mother of five she carved out a career as a stills photographer. In the early 1970s she channelled her formidable energy into establishing the Central Australian Aboriginal Media Association (CAAMA) and later Imparja TV. Not just a bio-pic, it’s part social history and part detective story, as the mystery behind her grandmother's death is tracked down. Three Indigenous women representing three generations were involved in the making of this splendid documentary: behind the camera is Freda's daughter, director Erica Glynn; and her granddaughter is producer Tanith Glynn-Maloney.

['She Who Must Be Loved'] is... deeply enjoyable – unpretentious and life-affirming. Audiences will leave touched by the sincerity of both the film and its subject.
