Hold onto your hats everyone, the beloved Rachel Griffiths will be appearing at #Breakthrough2016!
Rachel Griffiths first captured our hearts in the iconic Muriel’s Wedding, and has gone on to have a prolific career as an actor, and more recently as a director and producer. She is best known internationally for her roles in Six Feet Under (for which she won a Golden Globe) and Brothers and Sisters. Her role in Hilary and Jackie earned her an Oscar nomination for best supporting actress.
Recently Griffiths portrayed Julia Gillard in the TV movie Stalking Julia, currently in post-production. Portraying the first female Prime Minister of Australia has led Griffiths to call for less barriers to women entering politics.
“We need more women on top and our girls do need more strong role models”
Griffiths is about to make her Feature Directorial debut, bringing Michelle Payne’s historic Melbourne Cup win to the big screen in Ride Like A Girl.
“Michelle told me people used to think women weren’t strong enough to ride, especially in the long races. But she said it’s not about the strength, it’s about the relationship you have with the horse.”
Rachel’s passion for combining her talent and work with positive social change is truly inspiring. We could not be more excited to have her joining us for #Breakthrough2016.
