If you happen to be in Canberra on Thursday the 5th of April, come along and say hello – I’ll be speaking and taking questions from an ethnographic perspective.
Our Generation Film Screening and Panel Discussion Q&A Event
Our Generation is an unforgettable journey deep into the heart of remote Australia, where the pride and health of Indigenous Australians is entrapped by the ongoing violation of their human rights.
Our Generation is a fresh and contemporary look at issues that remain unresolved, particularly surrounding the 2007 Northern Territory Intervention. It is a rallying call for understanding, respect and action.
Winner best campaign film, the London International Documentary Festival 2011.
The Film will be followed by a panel discussion and Q&A session focused on the NT Intervention, the current ‘Stronger Futures’ legislation – and what they mean for Indigenous communities and Indigenous rights in Australia. Panel discussants include:
Professor Jon Altman Centre for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research, ANU
Bree Blakeman PhD scholar and Arnhem Land ethnographer, ANU
Angus Bucknell Australian Lawyers’ Alliance spokesperson
Paul Howorth International Indigenous Peoples’ Human Rights lawyer
Chaired by Geoff Buchanan, PhD scholar, Centre for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research, ANU
