Amnesty International, Our Generation

Our Generation is a powerful and upfront documentary on the Australian Aboriginal struggle for their land, culture and freedom – a story that has been silenced by the Australian Government and mainstream media. Driven by the remote Yolngu of Northeast Arnhem Land, one of the last strongholds of traditional Aboriginal culture in Australia, as well as the voices of national indigenous leaders, historians and human rights activists, the film explores the ongoing clash of cultures that is threatening to wipe out the oldest continuing culture in the world. Music by John Butler Trio, Yothu Yindi, Xavier Rudd, Gurrumul, Archie Roach, Goanna, Saltwater Band and more.

The University of the Sunshine Coast's Amnesty International Uni group will be hosting this screening as a part of Amnesty International's Homelands campaign.

The group is also holding letter writing session for the Homelands campaign on 30 April.

When: Thursday April 26 2012 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Where: University of the Sunshine Coast, Lecture Theatre 7, Block C, Sippy Downs Drive, Sippy Downs, QLD, 4556
