UTOPIA plus Satellite Q&A with John Pilger

Monday 18 November, 8.30 at Greenwich Picture House (who thought this might be of interest to our members, and they kindly host our monthly letter signing drop-ins)

Directed by BAFTA-winning filmmaker and journalist John Pilger, this is an extraordinary film about Utopia, a vast region in northern Australia that is home to the oldest human presence on earth.

One of the world’s best kept secrets is revealed against a background of the greatest boom in mineral wealth. Has the ‘lucky country’ inherited South African apartheid? And how could this happen in the 21st century?

As Pilger draws on the people and places he first filmed 28 years ago during his long association with the indigenous people of his homeland, the evidence he produces is often deeply moving and shocking.

UTOPIA is both a personal journey and a universal story of power and resistance, of those who conform and those who do not.
