Join us for our Black Screen film program, curated by John Harvey from Brown Cabs, an FCAC Company-in-Residence.
After the Apology (2017)
Written and directed by Larissa Behrendt
Produced by Michaela Perske
In 2008, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd said sorry to the Stolen Generations of Indigenous people taken from their kin and country since the 1800s. Since the apology, the number of Indigenous children forcibly removed from their families has almost doubled. Through the story of four grandmothers, Behrendt chronicles the rise of a new national movement, fighting to convince the government that ‘sorry means you don’t do it again’. Bursting with the hopeful and resilient spirit of its remarkable subjects, After the Apology is a redemptive experience not to be missed.

VENUE: FCAC Performance Space
Presented in partnership with Moondani Balluk at Victoria University as part of FCAC’s Indigenous Cultural Program.
