It was not until 1967 that Australian Aborigines were recognised as human beings in their own country. In a double bill of documentary and feature drama, we explore a history of oppression and struggle. The Redfern Story is a documentary profile of Australia’s National Black Theatre, established in 1971. The first of its kind, it became a focal point for Civil Rights activism, mixing arts with Black Power politics.
