      New Matilda: Utopia: The Inside Story
      https://newmatilda.com/2014/05/24/utopia-inside-story
      24 May 14: "On May 31, John Pilger’s latest film, Utopia
      will air on SBS television. New Matilda owner/editor Chris
      Graham worked as an Associate Producer on the film. In this
      special feature, he provides an inside look at the making of
      Utopia. SOMETIMES in life, you can feel pretty helpless.
      That said, I’m a privileged white guy in a privileged white
      society. So for me at least, it doesn’t happen very often.
      It happened last year." By Chris Graham


      * THE STRINGER:
      A LONG WAY TO GO FOR 'UTOPIA'



      - Analysis / Opinion

      The Stringer: A long way to go for 'Utopia'
      http://thestringer.com.au/a-long-way-to-go-for-utopia/
      26 May 14: "Twenty-eight years have passed since John
      Pilger’s insightful documentary, ‘The Secret Country’.
      Those who have not seen ‘The Secret Country’ please do
      watch it. It is there to be viewed freely on the internet.
      And then after watching Pilger’s newest documentary
      ‘Utopia’, you will find little has changed, and indeed much
      has gotten worse. John Pilger returned to Australia to
      produce ‘Utopia’, following the impost of the Northern
      Territory Intervention. ... In the documentary ‘Utopia’,
      Amnesty International’s Secretary-General, Salil Shetty
      asked the question – why is one of the world’s richest
      countries unable (or unwilling) to end the extreme poverty
      of only tens of thousands of First Peoples." By The Stringer
