Still We Rise

Directed by John Harvey

In 1972, a group of Aboriginal activists erected the Aboriginal Tent Embassy opposite the Australian Parliament in Canberra, protesting legislation by then-Prime Minister William McMahon that threatened Indigenous land rights. This act sparked one of the world’s longest ongoing protests for Indigenous land rights. Through archival footage from the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, Still We Rise delves into this pivotal moment, highlighting the significance of the ongoing struggle for Indigenous sovereignty. The retrospective serves as a poignant reminder of the enduring legacies of settler colonialism, urging us to confront and address the setbacks faced by Indigenous communities.
