Screening

Taboo Film Series

Witness some of the most controversial films of our time. Opening the series and setting the bar is Salo (120 days of Sodom) by Pier Paolo Pasolini. Made in 1975, it was banned in Australia until 2010. Be challenged by the themes and content of this classic and other local and international films embodying the essence of TABOO.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.

Thursday 24 January
Stolen Generations
DVD Colour 55 minutes
Director: Darlene Johnson
The story of Stolen Generations is told by the survivors of the Stolen Generations, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders forcibly removed from their families as children by official government policy from 1909 to 1969. Hear from people, who, as children, were brutally removed from their families. See stories of resistance – how mothers smeared their children with black clay to make them more ‘black’ and hid them in trees. Witness the stories of reunion between stolen children and surviving parents – both joyous and painful.

FREE, drop-in
