- 79 Myrtle St, Chippendale, NSW, 2008
In the lead up to the launch of Amnesty International's Indigenous Youth Justice campaign, you're invited to a short film screening about the Aboriginal homelands.
Up to 30 per cent of the Northern Territory's Indigenous Peoples live on 'homelands' - small-to-medium sized communities established so that Indigenous Peoples can maintain their traditional and ancestral connection to the land.
Special guest speaker Angela Bates, the producer of 'Homelands', will introduce the films on the night.
Come along at 6:00pm for a 6:30pm start.
Everyone is welcome and refreshments will be provided.

About the films
NITV's documentary focuses on the controversial issue of the Aboriginal homelands in the Northern Territory.
Despite research showing Indigenous Peoples are often better off living traditionally and maintaining a connection with their culture, critics argue it is not economically viable.
Get educated about this important issue as the documentary takes you behind the scenes and into the heart of the homelands.
