Woomera documentary and panel discussion
Join in the discussion after the film
If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time, but if you come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together. (Lilla Watson, Aboriginal Educator and Activist, Brisbane)
More about Holiday Camp: a documentary about Woomera2002
The pivotal action of this documentary is the detention centre breakout, which occurred as part of a five-day long direct action camp established next to the razor wire fences.
Holiday Camp reclaims the voices of the marginalised, and connects the issues of Indigenous dispossession, genocide, constructions of race and incarceration policies, which are often portrayed as unrelated. The film suggests that the policy of mandatory detention and raising of borders to protect fortresses of privilege make us all un-free.
Holiday Camp has screened in Sydney, Adelaide and Newcastle, and was screened at European border camps in Strasbourg France, Jena (Germany), and the second European PGA conference in Leiden (Netherlands).
Holiday Camp was produced by drive-by shooting/tallstoreez productionz, a three-person Australian/German film collective based in Adelaide and Hamburg.
Panel Discussion: A dialogue about resisting the border protection regime in Australia and internationally
How is your liberation bound up with mine? How will we work together? Where do we meet?
The directors of the film, Jennifer and Kuddell, will be at the screening to talk about Holiday Camp.
Kuddell will share his experiences at recent international actions against border protection policies in fortress Europe held in Strasbourg and Jena border camps. Strasbourg was a European-wide mobilisation of border activists. Jena was largely initiated by self-managed asylum seeker organizations based in Germany.
Jess will report back from her recent trip to Baxter and Woomera detention centres, and relate messages from current detainees.
