Event description

Description

The University of Sydney's Operations Diversity and Inclusion Committee in partnership with the Office of the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Indigenous Strategy and Services) are pleased to bring you a special screening of the landmark feature documentary ‘After the Apology’ on Monday 18 November at 5:30pm.

This film, written and directed by Professor Larissa Behrendt, explores the continued practice of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander child removal and the detrimental impact on the children, their families and communities. Central to the story is the plight of an extraordinary group of women, Grand Mothers Against Removal, who are not only taking on the system that has historically removed Indigenous children from their families, but are changing it.

Please also join us the following night, Tuesday 19 November at 6pm, for a Sydney Ideas panel discussion that will focus on the issues addressed in the film. The panel will feature filmmaker, barrister and Professor, Larissa Behrendt, and Boe Rambaldini, Director of The Poche Centre for Indigenous Heath, and will be moderated by The University of Sydney’s Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Indigenous Strategy and Services), Professor Lisa Jackson Pulver AM.

Please note that you will need to register separately for each event.
