The Australian Wars, SBS, offers a ‘compelling awakening to Australian history’

Dramatic reconstructions and interviews with Aboriginal Elders, descendants of warriors and survivors will bring this sweeping story to life.

Blackfella Films and SBS will present a groundbreaking documentary series next month, looking at Australia’s longest and perhaps most defining war, albeit one that has traditionally been kept silent.

Premiering at 7.30pm on Wednesday 21 September, The Australian Wars will cover ‘the battles fought on home soil, as the colonial frontier pushed forward, and First Nations peoples resisted’, and is directed and presented by filmmaker and Arrernte and Kalkadoon woman Rachel Perkins.
