Curator's Cut: Dirt Cheap
- DateWednesday, 18 September, 5:30pm - 7:30pm
- LocationNorthern Territory Library
This powerful on-the-ground documentary about the controversial Ranger Uranium Mining Agreement reveals the resilience of the Mirrar people and the inflated promises of the minerals industry in north Australia. With extravagant claims about the longevity and prosperity of the mine on the edge of Kakadu National Park, Dirt Cheap highlights how the Aboriginal Land Rights Act failed to protect the interests of the Traditional Owners.
The Mirarr established Gundjeihmi Aboriginal Corporation (GAC) in 1995 to assist them in managing a balance between sustainable development, traditional practice and living culture on their land.
Following the film, a special guest from the Gundjeihmi Association will discuss the Ranger Uranium Mining Agreement.
