Visit MAIC's info stall at the Melbourne launch of 'Our Generation'

Melbourne Premiere of the groundbreaking new documentary on Aboriginal rights, Our Generation.
Taking place at 
7pm on Friday 22nd October at the Capitol Theatre, 113 Swanston Street.

“This is a very important film that everyone must see… It will change your life.” John Butler
Our Generation is a rollercoaster journey into the heart of
Australia’s Indigenous relations, a hidden shame that is pushing the world’s oldest living culture to the edge. Through the stories of the Yolngu of Northeast Arnhem Land, the film examines the Government's ongoing policies of paternalism and assimilation, examines the real issues underlying Indigenous disadvantage, and opens dialogue on ways forward that respect Aboriginal culture and dignity. A fresh and unflinching look at unresolved issues, with music by John Butler Trio, Yothu Yindi and Gurrumul.
The evening will feature:
-Live music by national treasures Shane Howard (Goanna) and Shellie Morris (Black Arm Band)
-Film presentation (73 min)
- Q&A discussion with the filmmakers, joined by Indigenous elders from
Arnhem Land Rev. Dr. Djiniyini Gondarra OAM and Djanumbe Gurruwiwi, and journalist Jeff McMullen.
