      'concerned Australians': John Pilger's film "UTOPIA"

      October 2013: "The Premiere of Utopia was held at the
      London National Film Theatre (BFI South Bank) on Thursday
      3 October 2013. A large crowd attended the screening and
      many signed a message calling for Treaties to be negotiated
      between Aboriginal Nations and the Australian Government.
      Utopia is John Pilger's new feature documentary. In his new
      film Utopia, John says that until white Australia
      negotiates a genuine Treaty with indigenous Australia,
      it can never claim its own nationhood. ... "

      Café Whispers: Notes from London

      6 Oct 13: " ... after seeing the new John Pilger
      documentary at it’s premier on Thursday night I felt I had
      to post about it. The documentary is called "Utopia" and
      is a sad statement on the way that we treat the first
      nation people in Australia. There are so many shocking
      moments (and they were moments that elicited gasps of
      horror from the audience). In the documentary he questions
      whether Australia has inherited apartheid from South
      Africa? And why the rest of the world does not condemn us?"

      Economic Voice:
      'Utopia' by John Pilger released in UK on 15th November

      http://www.economicvoice.com/utopia-by-john-pilger-released-in-uk-on-15th-november/
      26 Sep 13: "One of the most extraordinary films about
      Australia is soon to be released in the UK. This is Utopia,
      an epic production by the Emmy and Bafta winning film-maker
      and journalist John Pilger. Utopia is a vast region in
      northern Australia and home to the oldest human presence
      on earth. 'This film is a journey into that secret country,'
      says Pilger in Utopia. 'It will describe not only the
      uniqueness of the first Australians, but their trail of
      tears and betrayal and resistance - from one utopia to
      another'." Author: Economic Voice Staff

      TO BE RELEASED IN UK CINEMAS IN NOVEMBER

      http://johnpilger.com/articles/a-new-john-pilger-film-utopia-to-be-released-in-uk-cinemas-in-november
      25 Sep 13: "Has the 'lucky country' inherited South
      African apartheid? And how could this happen in the 21st
      century? What role has the media played? Utopia is both a
      personal journey and universal story of power and
      resistance and how modern societies can be divided between
      those who conform and a dystopian world of those who do
      not conform. Utopia draws on people and places Pilger
      first filmed 28 years ago during his long association
      with the indigenous people of his homeland. The evidence he
      produces is often deeply moving and shocking."
