Council celebrates National Reconciliation Week 2019


Council is joining in celebrations to mark National Reconciliation Week by presenting a special cinematic event on Thursday 30 May.

The award-winning documentary, Undermined: Tales from the Kimberley which is screening at Sacred Heart College in Kyneton offers viewers an insight into one of Australia’s largest areas of untouched wilderness, the Kimberley.

Described as a “David and Goliath battle”, the film chronicles the story of Indigenous people’s struggles to protect their land against development by big businesses such as mining, pastoralism and agriculture.

Echoing this year’s Reconciliation Week theme, ‘Grounded in Truth, Walk Together with Courage’, the film is told through the stories of the people that live there, examining the possible effects of proposed developments on over 200 remote Indigenous communities in the region.

Fresh from screenings at the Melbourne International Film Festival and Brisbane International Film Festival, Undermined: Tales from the Kimberley provides a voice for the often unheard and asks, who really benefits from large-scale development?

Undermined: Tales from the Kimberley is showing on Thursday 30 May from 7pm at Sacred Heart College, 94 High Street, Kyneton. Entry is by gold coin donation. Bookings are not necessary.
