Tuesday 24 July 2018

Join us for a free screening of Larissa Behrendt's After the Apology on Tuesday 24 July, as part of the Footscray Arts Centre's Black Screen series.

The Footscray Arts Centre and Moondani Balluk at VU present this Indigenous-focused film program, curated by John Harvey from Brown Cabs, a FCAC Company-in-Residence.

About After the Apology

In 2008, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd said sorry to the Stolen Generations of Indigenous people taken from their kin and country since the 1800s. Since the apology, the number of Indigenous children forcibly removed from their families has almost doubled.

Through the story of four grandmothers, Behrendt chronicles the rise of a new national movement, fighting to convince the government that ‘sorry means you don’t do it again’.

Bursting with the hopeful and resilient spirit of its remarkable subjects, After the Apology is a redemptive experience not to be missed.
