Hidden from the eyes of the world, Australia’s First Peoples are fighting for freedom. Our Generation is their call to the nation, a fresh and unflinching look at unresolved issues, driven by the Yolngu of Northeast Arnhem Land.
If ever Australia has an inconvenient truth, this is it. Our Generation is a highly emotional, powerful journey into territory that we have chosen too long to ignore. This is a film every Australian needs to see. ~ Cathy Henkel, The Burning Season
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.
