The Amnesty Redfern Action Group invites supporters and community members to attend a preview screening of ‘Undermined: Tales from the Kimberley’, by donation.
Award winning director Nichols Wrathall investigates the cost of development in the Kimberley region, where mining, farming and irrigated agriculture development pose a threat to not only the environment but more than 200 remote Indigenous communities and their peoples’ connection to Country. As the government aspire to make this region the “future economic powerhouse of Australia” this film questions what this means for the Kimberley’s traditional custodians, land, culture and the future of these communities. Watch the trailer here.
Also learn more about Amnesty International Australia’s Community is Everything – Raise the Age campaign, focusing on raising the age a child can be locked up to at least 14 years and funding Indigenous-led alternatives to prison for kids between 10-13 that help them get back on track.
We will be joined by Director, Nicholas Wrathall for a Q&A session.
Doors open at 5.30pm, for a 6pm start.
Donations at the door welcome, recommendation $10. Light refreshments will be provided.
