The Redfern Story

Durban International Film Festival 2016: Short, sharp reviews by Brenda Daniels

The Redfern Story is a fresh, positive, happy look at how the arts world was a germination ground for Aboriginal political consciousness in 1970s Australia. So used to angst-riddled race rhetoric I welcomed this simple documentary that showed the originality, boldness, creativity and sense of humour that characterised the beginnings of Aboriginal theatre in a suburb of Sydney called Redfern. A gem.
