Summary.

 

Incarceration Nation is a 90-minute Feature Documentary that connects the relentless government intervention since colonisation to the trauma and disadvantage experienced by Indigenous Australians – the two key drivers of incarceration.

The story is told through archive and expert interviews including Judge Matthew Myers, barrister Joshua Creamer, Associate Professor Chelsea Bond, Professor Don Weatherburn and lawyer Teela Reid.

Incarceration Nation also gives voice to the victims of systemic injustice – Keenan Mundine, the Dungay, Fisher, Day and Hickey families.

Incarceration Nation is not just a documentary about the harms of policing and prisons – it is an invitation for us all to do things differently… and that might be just the kind of meaningful hope you, your friends and family are looking for at a time when understandably many of us feel quite powerless.
