Inside Out: Indigenous imprisonment in Australia

video Inside_Out__Indigenous_imprisonment_in_Australia_-_documentary_video___Australia_news___The_GuardianProduced and filmed by Bill Code, this documentary looks at one man’s fight against the scourge of Indigenous imprisonment in his community. I was the narrator of Inside Out, which 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?

The film was shortlisted at the 2015 Amnesty Australia Media Awards in both the Indigenous and Television categories
