The Screen Guide

Each year, 23 August 1937 is celebrated by the people of the Torres Strait. A massive maritime strike by the Torres Strait Islander workers in 1936 was successfully coordinated to bring an ending to the virtual slavery policies of the Queensland Government and its appointed Native Protector. The day is seen by the Islanders as the 'Day Torres Strait became a Nation'. This documentary takes a look at the lead-up and history behind the day's event. Part of ICAM series.
