You Can Go Now selected for HOT DOCS 2023
Thrilled to share our latest project about First Nations artist and provocateur Richard Bell will have its International Premiere at this year’s Hot Docs in Canada.
In addition to a profile of Richard’s career, we get an expansive history of 50 years of Aboriginal activism in Australia. Archival images of the Redfern movement of the 1970s and the Canberra Tent Embassy protest site offer insight into Bell’s experience of front-line activism and the way his work links the fight for Australian Aboriginal sovereignty with the American Civil Rights movement. You Can Go Now offers a vital primer, not only on the work of Bell, but also on the significance of Aboriginal Australian currents of 20th- and 21st-century art.
