Film Screening and Q&A session with local Aboriginal Elder Jennifer Newman
Come along to watch 'Occupation: Native', starring Trish Moreton and Steven Oliver. In this country, the Aboriginal story is often buried deep beneath the accepted 247-year Australian historical narrative. It's not that the Australian story is wrong, it's just that it's a wee bit one-sided. Getting all historical, Aboriginal filmmaker Trisha Morton-Thomas, bites back at Australian history.
Then will be followed by a questions and answers session hosted by local Wirraduri woman Aunty Jennifer Newman. Snacks provided from 5.30pm, movie to commence at 6pm.
