About the listing
Wilora Kwatye presents a community documentary screening of Undermined: Tales from the Kimberley. The film will be followed by a brief discussion/Q&A about the intersection of issues faced by the families living on Kaytetye country in Central Australia.
See the trailer at: http://underminedfilm.com/
"Australia’s vast and unspoiled Kimberley region is under threat, with mining, pastoralism and irrigated agriculture driving an unprecedented land grab. UNDERMINED investigates the politics of an area now branded “the future economic powerhouse of Australia,” and what this means for our First People and their unique cultural landscapes. As pressure from industry exposes the limits of Indigenous land rights, what will remain of over 200 remote Aboriginal communities? We follow young leader Albert Wiggan, veteran cattleman Kevin Oscar and Senior Elder June Davis through David-and-Goliath battles to preserve their homelands, asking the question: for whose benefit is this development?"
"The film offers an unashamedly partisan view but it's also a powerfully persuasive one." - Sydney Morning Herald & The Age
"Undermined – Tales from the Kimberley follows the stories of four traditional owners who share common concerns about the way politics and big business are squeezing them out of their land and economic opportunities for their people." - Let's Talk 98.9FM
