Screening

John Pilger’s Utopia
– Australian Premiere Season

All events are now fully booked out

Discover Australia’s hidden past in this Australian premiere of acclaimed journalist and filmmaker John Pilger’s major feature documentary Utopia. Reaching behind Australia’s tourist postcard image this film tracks political treatment of Indigenous Australians – from land rights to the revisionists – revealing an untold history of Australia. A special post-show conversation featuring John Pilger and a number of Indigenous representatives from the film will follow the 26 January Australia Day screening.

‘The First Australians have the lowest life expectancy of any of the world’s indigenous peoples. Thousands never reach the age of 40. An entire black rugby league team, champions in the 1980s, no longer exists, the victims of preventable disease and suicide. Young black men are incarcerated at five times the rate of apartheid South Africa in vast, rich Western Australia, home of the current resources boom’ – John Pilger 2013

John Pilger has been a war correspondent, author and filmmaker. An Australian, he is only one of two to win British journalism’s highest award twice. For his documentary films, he has won an Emmy and a British Academy Award. His epic 1979 Cambodia Year Zero is ranked by the British Film Institute as one of the ten most important documentaries of the 20th century. Death of a Nation, filmed secretly in East Timor, had a worldwide impact in 1994. His books include Heroes, Freedom Next Time and A Secret Country, a history of Australia. His long association with indigenous Australia has produced four ground-breaking films, including his latest, Utopia. He is a recipient of Australia’s international human rights award, the Sydney Peace Prize, for ‘enabling the voices of the powerless to be heard’ and ‘for fearless challenges to censorship in any form’.
