Our Generation (film)
|Directed by||Sinem Saban
|Music by||John Butler|
|Running time||73 minutes|
Our Generation started in response to the Howard Government’s controversial ‘Emergency Intervention’ into Aboriginal communities in Australia’s remote Northern Territory. The film explores how the Kevin Rudd’s 2008 apology for the Stolen Generation did nothing to alter their treatment of Australia’s indigenous population, continuing to undermine their access to basic human rights.
The film analyzes Australia’s indigenous relations, from colonisation until the present day. It looks at Australia’s ongoing policies of assimilation, explains the issues underlying Indigenous disadvantage in the country, and upholds the right of First Australians to dignity, culture and empowerment. The documentary looks at the Northern Territory Intervention, and the 2007 Little Children are Sacred report about child abuse inside indigenous communities.
