Friday 21 December–Three Boys Dreaming

Friday 4 January–Rabbit Proof Fence
In 1931, three Aboriginal girls escape after being plucked from their homes to be trained as domestic staff and set off on a journey across the Outback.
Friday 11 January– Blackfellas
Based on Archie Weller's award winning novel The Day of The Dog, Blackfellas tells the story of Doug Douligan (John Moore, Pitch Black), a half-caste Aborigine caught between an undying allegiance to his people and his greater aspirations to be free from the deadly cycle of violence and self-destructive behaviour in which they live.
Friday 18 January–Jandamarra's War
In Jandamarra's War we learn how in the 1890's European settlers arrive in the Kimberley, North West Australia, with vast herds of sheep and cattle, determined to make their fortune by feeding a rapidly growing population in the South. But the settlers soon discover they are amongst indigenous tribes, ready to fight the red-faced invaders who are occupying their land.
