I got the message from fellow TAFE student Dale Simone Roberts to spread the word about the preview screening of OUR GENERATION, the long awaited documentary on Aboriginal rights in Australia at the Byron Bay Community & Cultural Centre on Tuesday December 8th.
This will be followed by Q & A with the filmmakers and a special free gig by dub groove favourite Oka. To check out the sounds of Oka click here
This project started out in June 2007 and is being independently funded, so that its message can stay clear, truthful and uncompromised. There will also be special screenings across Australia (including remote Aboriginal communities), as well as educational outreach through schools and universities.
Date: Tuesday 8th December
Venue: Byron Bay Community Centre
Tickets: $15 from venue box office (02) 6685 6807 and Planet Corroboree

I just wanted to pass on this opportunity to see the international and award winning film Rainforest – The Secret of Life this Sunday night 1st November at 7.30pm on ABC.
I’m assured by a friend that it is well worth watching, fantastic vision and has really great information. It was filmed right on our doorstep, all around the Mt Warning caldera on the Qld – NSW border, our beautiful north coast, by David Warth of Byron Bay and narrated by Jack Thompson – so I wouldn’t miss it!
Rainforest – The secret of life, intimately follows the life and death struggles of the creatures of the rainforest. This documentary captures footage of extremely rare animals, like the amazing Albert’s Lyrebird, which is found nowhere else on Earth. This unique rainforest is home to many rare and endangered species, and is connected to many of the other rainforests around the world.
The film takes a very intimate look into the life in our local rainforests and then incorporates the latest scientific information on how rainforests are an integral part of the planets air conditioning system.
It has won a Gold Award and the Golden Tripod Award for Wildlife and Nature films from the Australian Cinematographers Society and the Jules Verne festival award for Nature films in Paris. It has recently been nominated for an award at the CMS Vatavaran environmental Film Festival in New Delhi India.
