Join friends and colleagues on Sunday, 2nd June at for a special screening of the moving film, Backtrack Boys, at All Hallows School Theatre, Dodge Lane, Fortitude Valley. Backtrack Boys is a powerful documentary by filmmaker Catherine Scott about youth justice reform in the Armidale District. The film follows a group of struggling boys who meet up with the rough talking, free-wheeling jackaroo and youth program leader Bernie Shakeshaft, and hit the road with his legendary dog jumping team. The screening will be a special benefit night to support the education, policy and advocacy work of Australians for Native Title and Reconciliation in Queensland (ANTaR Qld) as well as being a great opportunity to meet ANTaR supporters and First Peoples Elders, especially those integral to Youth Justice reform in Queensland. The screening will also feature special guest Mr Mick Gooda, Gangulu Man from Central Queensland and Respected Leader among First Australians, who has worked as Social Justice Commissioner with the Australian Human Rights Commission and as Co-Commissioner in the Royal Commission into Youth Crime in the Northern Territory. Mr Goodna will address the movement towards constitutional recognition of First Peoples and the Makarrata (treaty) momentum. Book a ticket or view the flyer for more details.
