Richard Bell on ‘You Can Go Now’ documentary

Following five decades of activism and art, the artist is now the subject of a new documentary.

Richard Bell, one of Australia’s most respected artists, has been at the forefront of campaigning for First Nations rights for 50 years. The history of Indigenous activism, Bell’s role and his own work are now the subjects of the documentary, You Can Go Now, from academic, UTS Professor and filmmaker Larissa Behrendt.

Covering Bell‘s years of activism, as well as his acclaimed art career, Behrendt‘s film provides a glimpse into the mindset and life of a man who self-describes as ‘an activist masquerading as an artist’.
