Fire of the Land and Freedom Ride

Two essential documentaries commemorating two landmark moments in activism by Indigenous Australians.

Fire of the Land (2002 / PG / 43 mins / D: Valerie Bichard)

At the time of the 2000 Sydney Olympics, sovereign rights campaigner Isabel Coe of the Wiradjuri Nation brought ashes from the Aboriginal Tent Embassy in Canberra to a peace camp in Sydney’s Victoria Park – marking an eloquent and passionate moment in recent Aboriginal history.

Freedom Ride (1993 / PG / 55 mins / D: Rachel Perkins)

Charlie Perkins was a university student in the 1960s who led other students on a ‘freedom ride’ through rural communities to fight segregation between whites and Aborigines. Filmmaker Rachel Perkins (Radiance, Bran Nue Dae) tells her father’s story.
