This is an extremely important piece of work that broaches cross-cultural legacies of the past and lies at the heart of the Peace Foundation’s values and aspirations, reflecting our strong commitment to reconciliation and justice for first Australians.
In the spirit of the Uluru Statement from the Heart, we are honoured to support this significant film. Recommended for viewing see the trailer here.
