Puberty Blues: It is a quintessentially Australian coming-of-age movie, starring Nell Schofield, which called into question the roles and behaviours of young people in Australian culture. 

For its fortieth anniversary, locally-based Nell is donating 20 framed black and white photos from the movie set to be sold at Ninbella Art Gallery in Bangalow, with the proceeds being donated to the Women’s Village Collective.

The 8×10 black and white images of the movie Puberty Blues arrived in a box, delivered to Nell a few months ago. 

‘They are all the classic scenes from the film,’ Nell told The Echo.

‘Rather than hold onto them, I wanted to pass them onto the public. I’ve been so welcomed here in the last two years, I wanted to give something back. 

‘There is such a depth of concern in the community about the housing emergency. The Women’s Village Collective was founded to help find homes for women and help address the housing crisis. Because the film is about women, I thought it was good to donate towards.’

The photos will be on exhibition from Wednesday, December 15 at Ninbella Art Gallery in Bangalow until December 30. 

Either drop by, or go online to find out more Ninbella Gallery.
