Reconciliation Australia’s theme for 2021, More than a word, urges the reconciliation movement towards braver and more impactful action. It’s a time to learn and share histories, cultures and achievements together, and move towards strengthened relationships between the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the wider Australian community. 

For Reconciliation Week 2021, join us for a screening of the highly acclaimed Australian film High Ground.

High Ground Synopsis

Set against the stunning landscapes of 1930s Arnhem Land, High Ground chronicles young Aboriginal man Gutjuk, who in a bid to save the last of his family teams up with ex-soldier Travis to track down Baywara – the most dangerous warrior in the Territory, who is also his uncle. As Travis and Gutjuk journey through the outback they begin to earn each other’s trust, but when the truths of Travis’ past actions are suddenly revealed, it is he who becomes the hunted.
