THIS IS OUR COUNTRY TOO Melbourne Premiere
@ The Bella Union, Trades Hall (Cnr Lygon & Victoria St)

From the makers of With or Without Fidel, Blood Diamonds and Bang Bang In Da Manor comes a brave new documentary that delves beyond Australia’s reputation of sun, surf and sand to reveal a nation ruptured by a deep racial divide and contested history. Taking the controversial 2007Northern Territory Intervention as its starting point, This is Our Country Too is a hard-hitting investigation into Australia's woeful treatment of its indigenous peoples, and a rare depiction of their unrelenting struggle for justice, equality and self-determination. The Melbourne premiere of the film will take place in the Bella Union, to be followed by a Q&A session with Walter Shaw.

Tickets: $10/$5at the door.
