This is an informative documentary about the abuse of indigenous people of Australia and their struggle for civil rights, from colonial times to the present. If anything, the whole process has been crueler and more heavy-handed than Canada's -- which isn't saying a lot for us. If you are interested in issues surrounding the cultural adaptations by and exploitation of indigenous people's generally, this film will help you see that the issues are worldwide and not just factors of North American history. (I've never seen a movie featuring Australia's indigenous people that couldn't have been adapted easily to Canada). One small annoyance is the film is that the narrator seems to be a tabloid journalist (with his heart in the right place though), interrupting powerful people who give him interviews, before they can answer his questions. That being said, one gets the sense that he's heard their doublespeak many times before. Utopia is a heartbreaker, but well worth watching for anyone with an interest in culture, history, and first nations issues, who likes a good documentary, or simply wants to be well informed.
