Told through the eyes of Yolŋu, Our Generation is an unforgettable journey deep into the heart of remote Aboriginal Australia, where the pride of an ancient culture is entrapped by third world conditions and ongoing violation of human rights.
Our Generation is an independent documentary film, made over 3 years, that looks at the current state of Indigenous relations in Australia, home to the oldest living culture in the world.
Driven by the remote Yolngu peoples of Northeast Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory, the film shines a light on the ongoing struggle of Aboriginal people to their culture, lands and basic human rights.
It is a call for understanding and action, for black and white Australians to come together to challenge the ongoing racism and assimilation that lie hidden in the “lucky country”. It is also a cry for freedom, on the frontier between worlds, that resonates with the struggles of Indigenous peoples across the globe.
Written, produced and directed by Sinem Saban & Damien Curtis.
Featuring Rev Dr Djiniyini Gondarra, Judy Djanumbe, Marcus Mungul Lacey, Rose Guyuwanga, Prof Larissa Behrendt, Prof Henry Reynolds, Les Malezer, and more.
