A fascinating insight into a massive, ongoing injustice
9 January 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I stumbled across this film last night and I can honestly say that I was blown away by the issues that it highlighted.

In the most part, the film has a very measured and matter-of-fact tone. The astonishing facts and statistics really do speak for themselves and generate an emotional response in the viewer that a drama would undoubtedly fail to do to the same extent.

This really is an important message; one that I hope will reach many people in the future.

I believe that it is also very important for people to realise that colonisation and the systematic genocide of individual cultures is very much a current and prevalent issue worldwide.

Please discredit any blinkered and frankly upsetting reviews that attempt to warp the unquestionable truths proposed in the film. The best thing to do would be to seek the film out, show it to people you know and allow the wider public to decide upon what to take from it.
