NAIDOC WEEK Screening of Occupational: Native
Join us NAIDOC WEEK for a free Movie Screening of Occupation: Native With special guest speaker, Co-Founder of Brindle Films Trisha Morton-Thomas Wednesday July 11 @ 5.30pm Bookings required. www.aspl.eventbrite.com.au or call 8950 0555 Refreshments provided Film Synopsis In this country, the Aboriginal story is often buried deep beneath the accepted 228-year Australian historical narrative. It’s not that the Australian story is wrong, it’s just that it’s a wee bit one-sided. Getting all historical, Aboriginal filmmaker Trisha Morton-Thomas bites back at Australian history. Bite-sized stories from first settlement to federation, from the expansion of Australia across the states to today, give a fresh look at the involvement of Aboriginal people in our country’s history. Comedy including skits and cartoons are balanced with serious moments of reflection and poignancy, creating an eclectic blend of Australian history that will appeal to all palates.
