Description

'The Opposition' screening featuring Q&A with Director Hollie Fifer

Mother’s Day, Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea (PNG), 2012: 100 armed police descend on the Paga Hill Settlement and open fire on protesters. They arrest PNG Opposition Leader Dame Carol Kidu, who had joined the protest in an attempt to protect the community’s human rights.

The impetus for this brutal attack was the planned development of a multi-million dollar five star hotel, marina, wharf and residential apartments - a precedent for PNG.

`The Opposition’, an investigative documentary, traces Joe Moses’ struggle to save his 3000- strong community from forcible eviction. Risking his own life and suffering betrayals and police brutality, Joe wages a three-year court battle against the companies behind the development. As the struggle unfolds, Joe recruits a coalition of allies including Dame Carol, investigator Kristian Lasslett and a dedicated team of pro-bono lawyers.
