UNDERMINED: Tales form the Kimberley | North American Premiere

Nicholas Wrathall | Australia | 2018 | 92'

Australia’s vast and unspoiled Kimberley region is under threat, with mining, pastoralism and irrigated agriculture driving an unprecedented land grab. The film investigates the politics of an area now branded “the future economic powerhouse of Australia,” and what this means for our First People and their unique cultural landscapes. As pressure from industry exposes the limits of Indigenous land rights, what will remain of over 200 remote Aboriginal communities? We follow a young leader, a veteran cattleman and a Senior Elder through David-and-Goliath battles to preserve their homelands, asking the question: for whose benefit is this development?

It's an untold chapter of the LGBT history revisited 50 years after Stonewall, with interviews with the most active transgender activists of recent times, and a particular focus on transgender women of color, as well as never-seen-before footage of key events of LGBT history, including LGBT pioneer icons Sylvia River and Marsha P Johnson.
