THE AUSTRALIAN DREAM
- Stan Grant / Lorton Entertainment
'The Australian Dream' is a documentary that uses the remarkable and inspirational story of Indigenous AFL legend Adam Goodes as the prism through which to explore race, identity and belonging. The film unpicks events in the 2013-15 Australian Football League and asks fundamental questions about the nature of racism and discrimination in society today. Walkley award-winning writer Stan Grant and BAFTA award-winning director Daniel Gordon join forces to tell this remarkable story of one of the most decorated and celebrated players in AFL history, Adam Goodes. A man who remains a cultural hero; the very epitome of resilience and survival, who continues to fight for equality and reconciliation despite the personal toll.
