The Screen Guide

The Block, Sydney, Australia’s Indigenous-owned housing precinct, has reached the end of an era, its buildings demolished and its future uncertain. This interactive documentary is an online time capsule that captures the essence of the neighbourhood and its 40-year history, and reflects on it as a symbol of struggle, unity and self-determination for the Aboriginal people. The first era of the Block is documented through stories told by the people who built it and lived through its golden era and tragic decline.
