Forum | Australian
HRAFF 2017 continues to feature films highlighting issues confronting Indigenous peoples in various regions. What are the common struggles among First Nations and Indigenous peoples, despite each community’s unique and often traumatic experience of the colonised world? The panel speakers are invited to take stock of current affairs across borders, such as land rights, representation, and social equity.
