Film screening of eye-opening documentary, "Our Generation"

On Friday, April 8th*, Amnesty International Australia will host a film screening at the NSW Action Centre, to bring attention to the Australian government’s failure to uphold its international commitment to protecting the rights of indigenous people.

Directed and produced by Sinem Saban and Damien Curtis – who have both been involved in fighting for Aboriginal rights for years –, “Our Generation” tells the story of a struggle hidden from the Australian public and shows how the nation’s first people continue in their fight for survival despite the National Apology issued by the Labor government in 2008.

This film is a call to Australia to take a fresh and unflinching look at these unresolved issues.

Renowned journalist, Jeff McMullen will give an introduction at the screening.
