It shocks many people to learn that the number of Aboriginal children being removed today by welfare agencies is much higher than during the time of the Stolen Generations. After the Apology is a landmark documentary exploring the continued practice of child removal and the community response. Grandmothers Against Removal are fighting back and bringing the children home.
Part of our special Reconciliation Week program, screening six new films to commemorate the 10 years since the National Apology on 13 February 2008. Reconciliation Week is an annual event, bookended by two milestones in the reconciliation journey. 27 May marks the successful 1967 referendum, and 3 June is the anniversary of the High Court Mabo decision.
