FROM THE BAFTA & EMMY AWARD WINNING DIRECTOR – A FILM BY JOHN PILGER
Drawing on his long association with the first people of his homeland Australia, Utopia is both an epic portrayal of the oldest continuous human culture and an investigation into a suppressed colonial past and rapacious present.
The title Utopia, refers to a district of Australia – the Northern Territory region north of Alice Springs – set solely for Aboriginals, which proves to be anything but as Pilger delivers an intense condemnation of the continuing mistreatment of indigenous people in this country.
Pilger’s research into welfare neglect and the current living conditions of Indigenous people is staggering and heart wrenching, as Pilgrer relays the stories of these people and the turmoil they face. It adds up to a documentary that is hard-hitting and opinionated, thought provoking and incisive, reminding us that resolving the issues of indigenous people is far for over.
