Tonight's the night! Join us from 6pm at Warner's Bay Performing Arts Centre, to watch two brilliant documentary style films; the insightful short 'It's Time' and the much anticipated screening of 'The Final Quarter.' ‘The Final Quarter’ follows the pits of Adam Goodes career, champion AFL footballer and Indigenous leader. In the final three years of his playing career he became a lightning rod for 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 cheers became boos as football crowds turned on him. Using only archival footage aired at the time, the film holds a mirror to Australia and is an opportunity to reconsider what happened on and off the football field. Following the screenings, Q&A’s with 'The Final Quarter' Director, Ian Darling, 'It’s Time' Director, Bridget Ninness and Indigenous AFL player Isaiah Olsen will activate discussion around racism in Australia.
