History Bites Back is the antidote to the boring, faceless, and overly sincere docos that often populate Indigenous issues. It’s comical, self-aware, and not afraid to launch a rocket into taboo issues.
Our continent has over a hundred thousand years of black history but when the whitefellas began to build their country on top of Aboriginal mob’s countries, they believed that the Aboriginal population would die out. Luckily they were wrong, but ever since then the whitefellas haven’t really known what to do with the blackfellas and the blackfellas haven’t been able to get rid of the whitefellas, and now there’s other fellas, biggest mob of fellas from all over the world sharing this place called Australia.
Still, our schools concentrate on the last 250 odd years of colonisation and most of that through a white colonial lens. So, in this day of modern technology, unlimited information and the World Wide Web, Aboriginal people still put up with a boatload of ignorance and misconceptions from our fellow Australians. From the creators of 8MMM Aboriginal Radio and Occupation: Native and continuing in the tradition of films like We Don’t Need a Map to tackle the hard issues with comedy and humour History Bites Back is a one hour, presenter-led documentary designed for a modern audience to be segmented into bite sized episodes for additional on-line streaming options.
Classification: MA (Mature Accompanied)
