Utopia Review

John Pilger sets out from Sydney, the town in which he grew up, on a journey across the Australian continent to examine attitudes towards aboriginal communities.


This typically trenchant John Pilger investigation exposes the ongoing neo-apartheid treatment of Australia’s Aboriginal population. The outrages he uncovers should shame a nation. But the relentless assault might have been better-suited to a two-part TV special than a feature.

The filmmaker firebrand is in pungent form as he dismantles the hypocrisy of Australia's treatment of its indigenous peoples.
