Australian Dream, The

Adam Goodes' personal story is at the fore in THE AUSTRALIAN DREAM, a feature documentary that encompasses the AFL great and his career – and the endemic racism he faced as an Indigenous footballer. Directed by BAFTA award-winning director Daniel Gordon.

The Opening NIght selection of MIFF 2019, Walkley award-winning journalist Stan Grant adapts his acclaimed Quarterly essay for a documentary about the Brownlow Medallist, Australian Of The Year 2014, and football star whose career was cut-short by a wave of discrimination in the media, on the field and by fans of Australian Rules. Focusing on Goodes but drawing on larger issues within Australian society, THE AUSTRALIAN DREAM finds a country divided on both its identity and the pathway to reconciliation.
