NSW: Message Sticks Festival: Free Films Saturday

NSW

Saturday Film Screenings are a chance to catch some of the best flicks about indigenous issues - and as a bonus, the event is totally free. Each screening will be followed by a Q&A with guest speakers. Such as director Steven McGregor, whose film, Croker Island Exodus, documents the 5000-kilometre journey made to Sydney, by foot, canoe and truck, by 95 Stolen Generation children and their missionary carers as they fled the Japanese bombardment of Darwin in 1945. Or Coniston co-director David Batty, whose acclaimed hybrid docu-drama has won acclaim for its searing depiction of Australia's "last massacre" of Aboriginal people in 1928 - and the way it allows their descendants to speak with authority about one of the darkest moments in our history. Finally, a worthy screening of the 1992 film Black Man's Houses offers a glimpse of Tasmanian history and the fight by its Aboriginal community to lay claim to the gravesites of their ancestors on Flinders Island in Bass Strait.

3.45pm | Coniston, 2012 (57 min) Directed by David Batty. Australia

5.45pm | Black Man's Houses, 1992 (55 min) Directed by Steve Thomas. Australia

7.45pm | Croker Island Exodus, 2012 (65 min) Directed by Steven McGregor. Australia
