Israel Folau two-part documentary to screen on ABC

The two-part documentary promises to take audiences 'inside the clash of culture, faith and football'.

Folau, the story of one of Australia’s most gifted and controversial athletes, Israel Folau, will screen on the ABC this month.

Promising to take audiences ‘inside the clash of culture, faith and football’, the documentary considers how a social media post landed the rugby union footballer at the centre of Australia’s culture wars, derailing careers in the process.

For the first time, says the ABC, ‘Israel Folau’s story is examined in all its multilayered complexity, featuring crucial Pasifika voices and exploring the nexus between freedom of religion and speech, protection from discrimination for the LGBTQIA+ community, and how far the workplace can reasonably go to balance the two’.
