Utopia (Australia, 2014)

TRIGGER WARNING.

Utopia is a documentary about the past and present of the brutality inflicted on Aboriginal peoples by the white invaders.

While we hate the fact that this documentary is only getting attention because it’s a white male saying what Aboriginal Australians have been saying forever, it is nevertheless a must watch.
