About this Event

This powerful on-the-ground documentary about the controversial Ranger Uranium Mining Agreement reveals the resilience of the Mirarr people and the inflated promises of the minerals industry in north Australia. With extravagant claims about the longevity and prosperity of the mine on the edge of Kakadu National Park, Dirt Cheap highlights how the Aboriginal Land Rights Act failed to protect the interests of the Traditional Owners.

The Mirarr established Gundjeihmi Aboriginal Corporation (GAC) in 1995 to assist them in managing a balance between sustainable development, traditional practice and living culture on their land.

Following the film, a special guest from the Gundjeihmi Association will discuss the Ranger Uranium Mining Agreement.

This is part of the Darwin International Film Festival and Northern Territory Library’s Curator’s Cut film series, screening rare films from the Library collection.
