A bold dive into a year of incendiary protest and revolutionary change for First Nations people. In 1972, the planting of a beach umbrella by young Aboriginal activists in the lawns opposite Parliament House sparked passion across the country. Sitting strong and proud on Ngunnawal country, the Aboriginal Tent Embassy soon became a marker for justice, uniting people across the nation in the fight for land rights. Fifty years on, the Aboriginal Tent Embassy is the oldest continuing protest occupation site in the world and the fight for land justice continues. A powerful and gripping documentary, Still We Rise celebrates the young articulate feisty activists who fought so hard to inspire the generations to come.
