NRW virtual screening: Wiks vs Queensland

May 27 @ 8:00 am - June 3 @ 6:00 pm AEST

Wik vs Queensland is a landmark feature documentary surrounding the historical court decision in 1996 by the High Court of Australia, granting native title to the Wik People of Cape York in Far North Queensland, and the demonisation that followed at the hands of politicians and media. With unique access to the key players of that moment in history, and featuring never-before seen footage of the (then) young lawyers Noel Pearson and University of Melbourne’s own Marcia Langton, Wik Vs Queensland tells a very personal story set against the backdrop of a tumultuous time in Queensland’s history. Looking back on this crucial moment in history, much can be learned from the Wik decision and the way that Australia chose to acknowledge, understand and respect Aboriginal people. Watch the film here any time from 8am on 26 May until 11.30pm on 3 June
