ONLINE – UNDERMINED: Film Screening + Q&A Tales from the Kimberley

2 June @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

ONLINE – UNDERMINEDl: Film Screening + Q&A Tales from the Kimberley

Join the virtual celebration for National Reconciliation Week with this screening of Undermined.

We’re adapting to our new insular communities but coming together, online, is how we maintain connection, keep conversations about First Peoples in the present.

Australia’s vast, unspoiled Kimberley region is under threat, with mining, pastoralism and irrigated agriculture driving an unprecedented land grab. UNDERMINED investigates the politics of an area now branded “the future economic powerhouse of Australia,” and what this means for our First People and their unique cultural landscapes. As pressure from industry exposes the limits of Indigenous land rights, what will remain of over 200 remote Aboriginal communities? Follow young leader Albert Wiggan, veteran cattleman Kevin Oscar and Senior Elder June Davis through David-and-Goliath battles to preserve their homelands, asking: for whose benefit is this development?

The screening will be followed by Q&A with its director Nic Wrathall and more.
