Gai-mariagal Festival 2023 - Events

Wednesday lunchtime documentaries: The Redfern Story

21 June 2023 | 12:30pm to 1:30pm

Wednesday lunchtime documentaries: The Redfern Story

Join us for a special screening of the 2014 documentary 'The Redfern Story' to celebrate the Gai-mariagal Festival.
A tribute to the deadly trailblazers who fought for land rights and social justice and who made a lasting impact on national politics, social welfare and the Australian arts scene.

'The Redfern Story' documents the efforts made through activism and theatre to bring the cause of Indigenous people to public notice, as a first step towards gaining land rights and better treatment. With theatre, dance and song as powerful political tools, Redfern became a thriving and vibrant melting pot of politics, art and creativity.

Running time is approximately 57 minutes.

Sweets with native ingredients will be provided by the wonderful Aboriginal-owned Bush to Bowl!

For extra comfort, you’re welcome to bring your own cushion.
