FRANCES DJULIBING (Nowalingu)

When director Rolf de Heer was casting in Ramingining during pre-production, he kept meeting the vibrant and vivacious Frances Djulibing, who at the time worked at the local shop. He quickly believed she would be perfect for the role of "Nowalingu" and promptly cast her as the second wife.

Her enthusiasm was second to none. She had always wanted to be an actor in a film but never thought it was possible given she lived in such a remote area of Australia.
