Amnesty UTS are a student group that work to pursue causes affecting Australia on refugee rights, arms trade, violence against women, and Indigenous homelands. Together with UTS Library, they are hosting a film screening of Inside Out: Indigenous Imprisonment in Australia.

Date: Wednesday, 7 October
Time: 6pm
Venue: Events Space, Level 2, City Campus Library

Synopsis: Filmed on the plains of north-western New South Wales, this documentary looks at one man's fight against the scourge of Indigenous imprisonment in his community. Inside Out tells the story of a pastor and former prison guard, Uncle Isaac Gordon, whose dream is to see the numbers of Aboriginal youths heading to jail slashed. Gordon wants to build a 'healing centre' for troubled Aboriginal young people at risk of jail time, built on his family's ancestral land near the towns of Brewarrina and Walgett. But will government bodies get on board?

A panel discussion will follow the screening, featuring the following speakers:

Dr Thalia Anthony - Senior Law Lecturer at UTS specialising in Indigenous legal issues

Amanda Atlee - Community Organiser for Amnesty International Australia's NSW office
