Utopia – John Pilger’s new documentary

John Pilger’s film “Utopia” trailer.


Note that “Utopia” is the name of a cattle station (Pastoral Lease 637) which, having been purchased, was subject to a successful Aboriginal land claim by Anmatjirra and Alyawarra speaking peoples under the 1976 Aboriginal Land Rights (NT) Act. The 1980 report of the Aboriginal Land Commissioner, Toohey J, is available online. See http://www.dss.gov.au/sites/default/files/documents/05_2012/06.pdf

“Utopia”, in its English usage, has a double meaning of “no place” and “good place” due to the ambiguity of the use of the initial ‘u’. Check wikipedia Utopia entry for more.
