The Australian Dream

Coming to Cinemas 22 August 2019

Documentary based on the life of former AFL star and advocate for Indigenous causes, Adam Goodes. BAFTA-winning filmmaker, Daniel Gordon.

The beginning of the end of Goodes' career was when he became the target of racial abuse during a game, which later spiralled into public backlash against him. Speaking out publicly about racism when Australia was unwilling to hear the truth, he retired quietly from AFL, heartbroken. This film explores Australia’s relationship with race and its ability to confront its own past.
