Drawing on John Pilger’s long association with the first people of his homeland Australia, Utopia (2013) is both an epic portrayal of the oldest continuous human culture, and an investigation into a suppressed colonial past and rapacious present.

  2. I would encourage anyone who is really committed to interrogating the basis of racism, and thereby eliminating it altogether, to view this film.

    The main difference from the US ‘conquest’ of native peoples, is that Australia has retained an unbroken British imperial policy of cultural eradication, subjugation and colonial absorption. The facts of this history are just shocking and gruesome.

    What is even more dreadful is the fact that it carries on to this day, driven not only by stubborn prejudice and gross intolerance, but from corporate greed, duplicity and the continuing & unaccountable criminal misappropriation of indigenous lands. So in that respect, the parallels with the US are self-evident.
