  • SBS Charter.

    This charter sets out the principal functions of the SBS and a number of duties it has to fulfil. These functions include the requirement to contribute to meeting the communication needs of Australia’s multicultural society (including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities), to increase awareness and promote understanding of these cultures, and to contribute to the retention of languages and provide content in these preferred languages.
  • The Koori History Website - Koori History Video Clips.

    Includes a collection of historical video clips, including sketches from Basically Black (ABC-TV 1973), the first all-Aboriginal TV show – a satirical political review written and performed by members of the Black Theatre: Bob Maza, Gary Foley, Aileen Corpus, Zac Martin, Bindi Williams.

The community still asks about all the members of the film crew to this day. To me, this shows that when things are done in the correct way, an ongoing connection between a community and filmmakers is formed. It shows how those connections become a form of Indigenous resilience for everyone involved. Colonialism has ruptured Indigenous peoples’ lives. I see films such as The Farm as an opportunity for Indigenous people to reconnect: to emphasise connections between ourselves, and our shared connection with the land. This idea of reconnecting with each other and with our land informs everything about The Farm.
