ACT Human Rights Comm presents Putuparri & The Rainmakers

The ACT Human Rights Commission and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elected Body invite you to join them at a free community film screening of Putuparri and the Rainmakers to recognise the anniversary of the United Nations Declaration of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP).

Putuparri and the Rainmakers is a universal story about the sacred relationship between people and place. It takes audiences on a rare and emotional journey to meet the traditional rainmakers of Australia's Great Sandy Desert who have fought a twenty-year battle to win back their traditional homeland. The film spans ten transformative years in the life of Tom 'Putuparri' Lawford as he navigates the deep chasm between his Western upbringing and his growing determination to fight for his family's homeland.

When: Tuesday 13 September 2016 - 5pm for drinks in Courtyard before screening
