Film: Our Generation – stories of the Yolngu

Our Generation:

A rollercoaster journey into the heart of the Northern Territory Intervent, a hidden shame that is pushing the world’s oldest living culture to the edge.

Through the stories of the Yolngu of NE Arnhem Land, the film looks at 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 look at unresolved issues, with music by John Butler Trio, Yothu Yindi, Archie Roach, Gurrumul, and Goanna.

  1. Hi everyone,
    This film was so inspirational and well-received when shown at the Schonnell that I bought a copy to be able to show it again and again.

    Please circulate the info and come yourselves if you haven’t already seen it.

    Thanks, Monique
