The Australian Dream (2019)

Documentary 1h 45m

AroView: A documentary about the legendary Australian Football League player Adam Goodes, which also provides an essential examination of Australia’s deeply racist past and present.

Follows the career of Goddes, an Aboriginal Australian of Adnyamathanha and Narungga heritage, in the world of professional football and in his tireless work as an anti-racism advocate, even as a culture of sustained crowd booing and vilification developed around him. An insightful, unflinching appraisal of the nation’s troubled history and discrimination in the sports industry specifically.

“This is uncomfortable, enlightening and compelling viewing, proof that America isn’t the only country with endemic and casual racism and how social media only makes such problems worse.” ~ James Croot, Stuff.co.nz
