In November 2019, Canadian Director Homeros Gilani visited Andamooka for a few days: scoping out locations, narratives and facts on the life and times of Alice Minnie Florence Davies-Berrington (1897-2001). Minnie was the first female opal miner in the Coober Pedy and Andamooka Opal Fields and was Andamooka’s first Postmistress. In 1958 Minnie wrote a book about her life called ‘Stones of Fire: A Woman’s Experience in Search of Opal’.
