Adelaide Launch of Our Generation (26 Oct) with special guests – MEDIA RELEASE

Our Generation, the groundbreaking new documentary on Aboriginal rights, is coming to Adelaide!

From the ongoing controversy of the Northern Territory Intervention,

to being forced off their traditional lands into larger townships crippled by social dysfunction,

to their languages being removed from school education,

to mining deals sidelining traditional owners,

the Aboriginal people of the Northern Territory are fighting for freedom.

Our Generation is their untold story; of a struggle hidden from the eyes of mainstream Australia.

“This is a film that everyone must see… It will change your life” – John Butler

The film will be launched at the Capri Theatre, on Tuesday 26th October,

on its Rolling Thunder East Coast Tour of Australia.

The event will be presented by eminent Indigenous elders from Northeast Arnhem Land and Central Australia, with post-film discussion chaired by veteran journalist Jeff McMullen,

and live music by secret star guest to be announced shortly.

Two of the elders present, Rev. Dr. Djiniyini Gondarra OAM and Rosalie Kunoth-Monks OAM, have recently returned from the United Nations in Geneva,  where they presented testimonials on Australia’s human rights abuses against Aboriginal people in the Northern Territory.

Dr. Gondarra has also been interviewed in the last few days on ABC Stateline: http://www.abc.net.au/news/video/2010/10/15/3040030.htm
