ANU will host a screening of the highly acclaimed Australian 2019 documentary, The Final Quarter.
Produced by Shark Island Productions and directed by award-winning social impact documentary filmmaker Ian Darling, The Final Quarter tells the story of champion AFL footballer and Indigenous leader Adam Goodes.
The film focuses on the final chapter of Goodes' playing career when he became the centre of a heated public debate and widespread media commentary that divided the nation. He publicly called out racism, was named Australian of the Year, was accused of staging for free kicks, and performed an on-field war dance celebration. The film is a powerful and confronting demonstration of the racism that still exists within Australia.
"Darling's film holds a mirror to one of the most shameful moments of our game's history... but it also gives us another chance for self-examination, which is all that Goodes asked of us." - Craig Little, The Guardian
"You don't have to care about football for this movie to hit 大中华彩票安卓版苹果ios." - Tom Clift, junkee.com
"As a nation, we haven't finished the conversation about racism Adam Goodes asked us to have." - Ian Darling, Director
