Barwon Game Changer – movie Power Meri
Power Meri follows Papua New Guinea’s first national women’s rugby league team and takes audiences inside Papua New Guinea and behind the scenes of women’s sport as it follows the Orchids through selection trials, arduous training with a fly-in-fly-out Australian coaching mentor, and diverse personal struggles as they prepare to face the world champion Australian Jillaroos and compete at the Rugby League World Cup in Sydney.
But their mission is greater than winning. In a country with appalling rates of domestic and sexual violence, sport is one of the few arenas in which Papua New Guinean women can show their strength. If they can perform like men on the rugby field, can they change attitudes back home when it comes to the treatment and status of women?
