The Screen Guide

COULDN'T BE FAIRER is an extraordinary depction of a side of Australian Aboriginal society which is hidden from the eyes of most white people. With unflinching honesty it depicts the problems of alcoholism, racial violence and political oppression still faced today by the first Australians, using astutely selected archival footage to provide historical depth. With the context of the Aboriginal land rights battle in Queensland, Aboriginal activist Mike Miller allows us to hear the voices of Aboriginal Australians as they discuss the effects that commercial enterprises like tourism and mining have had on their communities. What emerges are disturbing images of Aboriginal poverty and white prejudice in a film which makes a hard-hitting statement about racial conflict.
