This is to let you know that Guniwaya Ngigu [We Fight], is to be screened nationally on NITV on 4th February at 7:30pm. The film was made by the Black Film Unit and is about the 1982 protests at the Commonwealth Games. After nearly 40 years this is the first time this landmark documentary has received any exposure on Australian TV or anywhere really. The screening of this film was made possible by the efforts of Peter Gray from Radical Times archive.
I did an interview yesterday with the director of the film, Madeline McGrady, see https://soundcloud.com/ian-curr/sets/guniwaya-ngigu-we-fight-a-film
