We Are Still Here filmmaker Beck Cole: ‘It’s incredibly authentic’

We Are Still Here, released across Australia this week, ties together eight stories by First Nations filmmakers.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander readers are advised that this story contains the name of a deceased Elder.

As the debate heats up around the referendum proposing a Voice to Parliament, the national dialogue lends even greater weight to eye- and ear-opening film We Are Still Here. Tying together eight unique stories by First Nations filmmakers from across Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific Islands, this glimmering anthology film spans a thousand years, from pre-colonisation to the Frontier Wars, through the shadow cast on contemporary times and on to an imagined future.
